and I were driving the road between Stratford and London. She looked
up into the sky and saw an amazing cloud formation. She turned to
me commenting "Isn't that beautiful?" I said, ""It is poetry."
"Poetry?" she asked. To which I replied "The whole world is a poem.
You just have to add the words."
People have come into my life making an unforgettable mark in my life, and then went a separate way to make their mark on the world. I have found respect and peace are attained through one person at a time. I wrote this poem for all the special people in my life who have make me think, made me wonder, and made me realize nothing is ever final. Once you have experienced the magic of true friendship, nothing can break the bond. It is stronger than distance, disappointment, and even diversity. I have had the great fortune of living in different parts of Canada and travelling to many countries in Europe. I have made friends in each different spot along the way. When the time had come to say good bye there have always been tears, but not necessarily tears of sadness. The joy that each has brought into my life renders a smile upon reflection.
been writing my thoughts, my words, in essence my poetry for years.
I have enjoyed bringing to light the ideas I find relevant in a world where
sometimes the important issues get buried behind simulated relevance.
My family have been the supporters of my spirit and my work since the beginning.
They are the reason I have the strength to be myself. They gave me
the courage to let my friends see all the sides of me I have to offer.
Thank you to all my friends that have realized I can hold myself
up, but sometimes I need someone to hold my hand.
