A Poem by Donna DeLong Matthews aka Gold Pen Ghost

Roses Are Red My Love

At waters edge today
I am once again found
It is here where I find
my only solid ground

In my life to those who have come and gone
and those who chose to stay
Many life's lessons I have been taught
that remain with me to this day

Loves that came
and always went
The reason for you
I know was heaven sent

Much I did learn
moving beyond the pain
That in every life
there must be some rain

I've learned to not know of pain
How can one truly appreciate love
If one is always looking down
you will miss what comes from above

I learned that love is forever
it can never be undone
Just put away
for me to learn from

The friends
who have danced upon my heart
and stand firmly planted today
to never depart

You taught me what forever really is
for once called friend
you can never be set free
in my heart you will be to the end

You answer each call of distress
my joys you celebrate as if yours
Me as your friend
I have never felt to be a chore

Oh the family
which whom you can not choose
Some I did win ...
Some I did sadly lose

God and my Dad were
the brightest stars of all
They were there to catch me
each time I would fall

Never a judgment
on me did they pass
Only love and understanding
is what was cast

My children and theirs as well
I pray one day for them to see
They are a light I draw upon
and who is really me.

So in my garden of life
my roses are so very red
The aroma the sweetest
upon which I have daily fed

My time is shorter
than from my start
Each and every one of you
I hold dearly in my heart.

So this day of love
I do so celebrate
to God Family and Friends
this I do dedicate.

Happy Valentines Day

You know who you are ...

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
 I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
