                 Missing piece of a puzzle

Today i sit and ponder on my thoughts
while
writing a letter to my dear friend, who is so
dear to me but does not have a face, she has
qualities that a few have in themselves but

Still i cannot seem to find the missing piece
of this puzzle, she makes me laugh, she gives
me happiness and all that a good friend is
supposed to do but sadly so she does not have

A face, we are pen friends since quite a while
but how do i place her in my mind as she does
not have a face, i see a small boy running along
the shore not far away from me, having his

Face bandaged only two eyes too see, he seems
happy and is playing in the water while
his mother is standing beside him holding his
thin fragile hand, she smiles at me and understands

what i am wanting to ask, and says " My son he
burnt his face while lighting a match, but he is
still so beautiful for me so what he does not
have a face ".......... i cannot find anything to say

To her so i just smile and turn my face thinking
what was i thinking a while ago, and look at
this woman who is contended without seeing her
son's face and still finds beauty in it .........

I look down now at the incomplete letter i
still have in my hands, the ink dried and the pen
held loosely between my fingers, i feel ashamed
of thinking about her as a faceless person when

In fact nothing lacks in her so what i have not
seen her? ..... no one has seen the air that we
breathe in, the smell of the rose is intoxicating
and captivating which cannot be seen either
is yet loved by its lovely sweet smell

Lots of things in this life do not have a face
to them, yet we learn to live with it and deal
with it most comfortably, then why crave for
a face which is not seen but its traits are

Marvelous which no one can match, i have learn t
one thing for sure its the person who is important
rather then finding the missing piece to the puzzle
we loose on the good points of the person

As a whole which is a picture in its self people
like me keep crying for that missing piece
to the puzzle in order to give /see the face
of the person who is a dear friend of mine......

Thanks for your sweet review i am honored .
This is a beautiful poem about loving someone for their mind instead of their looks. And I like the part about the smell of the rose and how it can't be seen yet people are still intrigued by it. You've explained skillfully here in my opinion. Well done, I enjoyed it.

What a beautiful poem. I love your play with words
the tone, and the wide-eyed thoughtful-expressions
that came across, vividly.

Thanks a million Diego for giving me such a sweet
review i really appreciate it ........
This is a grand tribute to all the people, even writers who never post a picture but still become quite good friends to us all. It really does become a small world when you think of the things we come to know about one another- even though we never see their faces! Wonderful writing too.
