Words...never are just words.

The Den



 To those, to all, to everyone in the den,

I just wanted to take this moment in time to say,

You will always to me, be considered friend.

For you have shared so much with me in the written word.

You have brought me much joy, and enlightened my dark days

You have listened to my cries in the night and given me a chance to be heard.

You have even taken the time to read and reply to the lines,

 which have poured freely from the depths of my heart.

My thanks go out to all, to everyone for everything.

 Therefore, may all that is good and all that is right

 from your lives and dreams never part.

For these are just a few of the things that I wished to say,

As I ponder the somber events that have come my way.

Yet, understand this, even as I pen these little words

I will not leave here unless I find not the means to stay.

Yet nevertheless,

to you all in the den….


May your words always come to you with ease,

May your muse always thrive

And your days be filled with words so wise.

May you always…always know

 how great it is to be alive.

God Bless You All.

Allen, I can hardly compose my thoughts after reading this... You have been a great light in a city of lights here at the den to me. Shine brightly wherever you are wherever you go. Thank you for your generosity of spirit - it has played a large part in restoring my faith in humankind. I hope to read your words again soon. Dawn

Thank you, Allen, for this loving poem. Kind of scared me when I first started reading though. I thought it was your farewell poem. I didn't want to read such a thing. :-) Love having you here. ~~Nordette

Hi Allen:

Wonderful photo.! I think I know your name from another writers' site even before the days we both began to use to den here, I'm so happy you had decided to come to the den and stay.

Thank you so much for this lovely poem!
