Barry Writes the Songs...
My apologies to Barry Manilow...
I write the poems that make hearts sing,
I write the poems that make bells ring.
I write poems that make you cry,
and the poems that make you ask, Why?
I write the poems because you are mine,
I write the poems because you rhyme.
I write the poems as high as the sky,
and the poems you are the apple of my eye.
I write the poems because they are there,
I write the poems that come from nowhere.
I write the poems that make me sigh,
and the poems when you make me high.
I write the poems of my dreams,
I write the poems bursting from seams.
I write the poems from my soul,
and the poems when you make me whole.
I write the poems about hurt and strife,
I write the poems that save a life.
I write the poems that wrench your world,
and the poems where truth is unfurled.
Like a flag-waving above the din,
helping us escape the fix we are in.
I write the poems.

|I've been reading your posts for weeks. One great write after another. Powerful, truthful, touching thought provoking, meaningful stuff. Then this??? Confusing, an off day perhaps? I have them all the time, (most of the time, in fact) but this isn't what I've come to expect from you. Love your work, but not a big fan of this one. Of course, I've never been a Manilow fan either. Go figure. Thanks for all of your efforts, including this one. Dick|
