My journey into writing prose begin at the early age of twelve, winning my first poetry contest for my poem " Just Because " , my love for the universe of words is the sweet yet sometimes painful chorus that travels as a vineyard thru time, my writings are graced with Love, happiness, great sorrows, unforgetable pains, suffering, true heartache, but most of all a gift to share with others, for I have traveled many roads, pathways, cross bridges, climbed mountains and hills, and I share with you my readers the most inner part of my soul, for thru life we all must experience happiness, love, saddess, pain, and sorrow, but thru all of this there is always hope, faith, grace, and dignity !
" Time can only make us Stronger
and LOVE can heal every pain "
"COUNT YOUR GARDEN BY THE FLOWERS,
NEVER BY THE LEAVES THAT FALL"
COUNT YOUR LIFE WITH SMILES
NOT BY THE TEARS THAT ROLL "
' NAMASTE '
I received a great gift from the soul of another, ( Richard Lee Orey ) I would like to share,
Please take time to visit Richard's Den, Blessing's to all Valerie
A Lovely Rose
( A poetic offering with heartfelt dedication )
This poem is lovingly dedicated to Valerie Pearson of Authorsden--and untold other
women who have walked the same path--who has endured abusive pain and suffering
and who now knows in her heart and soul that "...all we have in life is Love..."

A Lovely Rose
In flight of day a lovely rose
Did speak by subtle sway
And stirred a heart so long lain dead
No flower could ever stay.
But embers did to fire aglow
And whispered soft affection
And bared a breast to open light
In trust and insurrection.
How to know the honest heart
Would blush the lovely rose?
A teardrop fell in shame and guilt,
No blush did it propose.
But only tender souls may touch
In magic born of heart
And dare to dream of times to come
When they're not far apart.
For all we have in life is Love,
To give, to share, enhance;
Would you deny ourselves
A hope? a prayer? a chance?
And so my honest heart does ask
In lines of rhyming prose
If I might share my love with you,
My sweet and lovely rose.
Richard Lee Orey
