For everyone here on WordPress, this is what you do to me whenever I read your lovely words. Thank you for always inspiring me and leaving me feeling comforted and loved. It’s this community that really brings me home.
Oh the feeling When I read such words The kind that touch my soul It’s pure bliss Orgasmic Mind-blowing Genius And I just want to shout out My unfeigned amazement From the rooftops Every time you write
It’s like a mother Who watches her child Take their first step Excitement and pride Respect and elation Gratitude and wonderment They all flood my chest Puffing it up With crisp memories Of bygone days The ones you leave me remembering The ones I want to hold on to Gripping tight to those nostalgic days Because I fear letting go
After all, I may never remember Those precious nuggets of time The ones that settle deep down In the hidden recesses Of my aging heart So I hold on Grasping ― white-knuckled Death gripping your words Because each lovely Beautiful Heartfelt word Each one of them Brings me home
