The touching of my heart


Many have touched my life

Some gentle, some unkind.

Some of them brought great strife

Some also touched my mind.

My parents were the first to care

Brother and sisters too.

They touched me and love did share,

But there was sadness too.

To a schoolmaster I must give a nod

A special interest he did take

He guided me on new paths to trod

My destiny he did shape.

There were childhood friends,

Grown up ones too

There were sweetheart friends

Some I thought were true .

The love I sought so hard to find

For me was not to be

Life I found can be so unkind

Children the only legacy

My children came into my life

What a wonder to behold

As I gazed upon each new-born life

Each more precious than gold.

What a joy it was to love them

And protect them from all fears

To hug them and care for them

And wipe away their tears.

And then into my life you came

And love was found at last

This would not be the same

As anything in the past.

This love has stood the test of time

Through good times and through bad

I thank you for those good times

I also thank you for the bad.

We need bad times to show we care

Enough to stick around

That in the good we are more aware

Of the love that we have found.

I thank you for your kindness

And the good times we have shared

No need to show love’s blindness

We know true love is shared.

I thank you for those little talks

In which we both delight

I thank you for the twilight walks

As the moon shines down so bright.

I thank you for the knowledge too

That we will never part,

But most of all I thank you

For the touching of my heart.

Good tale of love and love that lasts and lasts until eternity. I had it too but he left Aug 17 07 to go with the angels in heaven and his Lord and Savior. He is in my spirit now too and I will love him always, He was so touching a person to me and sounds like you treat yours as he treated me. Nothing can keep love from growing, but death. Yours is still growing, I am sure.

You have done something in poem I think we all should do. Remember that everyone of us has been influenced for good or evil by others along the way. This is a great expression of acknowledging that no one is an island unto themselves. Good work! May your readership increase, as you touch others.

Dear Mr. McCormick, I was deeply moved by this outstanding piece you have penned here. I can relate every line so well to my own life and, like you, feel so grateful to those who have touched my life from childhood to the present. I especially loved the feelings you convey about your children and when, at last, you found that special person who made your life complete. I truly enjoyed every moment of this.
