The Best In Me ღ KKD ღ

A Poem by Donna DeLong Matthews aka Gold Pen Ghost



The Best In Me

Was it fate
or just destiny's call
That led me back
to where I'm most comfortable of all

Over the years
You tapped upon my heart
Pulling me back
to where I made my start

I drifted from place to place
just looking for my own
Never quite finding
a place to call home

As I glance over my shoulder
the many footsteps taken
It was always here
that my heart was smitten

So many have come and gone
to never be forgotten
Dearest Albert and Tess
Oh my heart they did brighten

This place once called home
has opened its doors wide
and welcomed me back
as the morning tide.

So many familiar
and many new faces
So many warm welcomes
and many warm embraces

It is because of you
my ink can freely flow
I pray my search is over
for a place I can go

My wings once again spread
for the whole world to see
My friends it is you
that brings out the best in me

In dedication to the awesome
Cafe Poets
My friends... My family
I thank you all so much.
My original intentions
were to stay until my dearest
of dear friends was settled
with her ink flowing freely
but I just cant bring myself
to walk away again....

You Bring Out The Best In Me

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
