I wanted
the right card to express my feelings.

I’d read one and then put it back-
the sentiments weren’t right

I’d read another, and another
and realized that my options
were dwindling

I read one more…

I was so moved by the tenderness and beauty of the words-
words that would make even the coldest heart sigh
and bow in prayer
They awakened my spirit and it blushed with

I felt the words and wished them to apply
but they didn’t

I began to feel melancholic about the feelings and
newness that used to be

Nothing was right
and I cried for it to be

I finally found a card but still longed for the
words and feelings from the other cards instead
of words that just are

I guess I wasn’t alone in how I felt because
I got the same exact card with
words that just are.

Oh the irony. I understand the feelings you express in this poem. I've had the same thoughts myself. I am a very sentimental person and will take hours choosing just the right card for those I love. The words have to be just right.

Dear Marilyn,

It can be so difficult to find just the right words to express the feelings of a soul laid bare ... and it takes a lot of courage too.

Blessings of Love & Light,

Hi Marilyn:

That is why I had chosen to leave the inside of my poetry card as blank, so you may find YOUR OWN words to put them into the cards.

However, a collection of my poems are seen at the back of my poetry cards. One can buy these cards as a collection of my work, or buy them to use as greeting cards.

You may find the information about my poetry cards in my "News" section.

Beautiful write...I am very selective when buying cards. :) Just any won't do. It has to speak to my heart.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

A bittersweet feel to this one Marilyn...Strange how getting the right card means so much, yet many times we settle for "words that just are". Why do we fear to tread, that's the question...Excellent poem!
