all right

all right

A Poem by Lydia Shutter


artwork by jim warren







you help me remember
that first sip of coffee on a chilly morning
a baby's giggle
dancing to an oldie on the radio 
the fierce compassion of a good friend
and the love of family now gone

you are the reason i am forgetting
what i spent too much time regretting

you are the book i want to read
again and again
the margin filled with special notes
your voice gently speaks the words
that previously did somersaults through my brain
truly it's always you
i suppose it always will be
and that's all right with me

.... I was aware of the smile forming from the very first line .. then the insidious aches of both old longing and losses began to take hold and stayed with me until I hit send .... this is one of those pages I am sure will draw me back to it ............ thank you Lydi**

No one writes romance as well as you Lydia. This warms my heart from the first line to the last. Lovely my friend. :) Julie

Wonderfully expressed affection for another who brings light into our life and a smile to our face. Genuine friends are priceless. Really nicely done, this felt good to read.

Thanks so much, Tom. Enjoy the weekend. Lydi**
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! Great dance between intelligent thoughtful comparisons with fun flighty delivery! I never would've imagined anyone defining love this way, but it's so powerful (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

A gorgeous poem that reminds me of a million
Dreams that pass in the night like Ships on the Ocean... and “That’s All Right”.

Ah, this is a passionate write, Lydia. I really like the feeling this poem gives off, the imagery too.

"you are the book i want to read
again and again
the margin filled with special notes
your voice gently speaks the words
that previously did somersaults through my brain" - these lines took me. tyfs

Thank you, Cyprian. I appreciate your review. Lydi**
ps. the Cafe' is stunting my comments so adding it this way if I can ... sent you a heart .. and my appreciation for the pic... i think the line is fantastic .. from face to eyes to waterfall and nature to concrete road and car .. a life's journey all interconnected seamlessly .. fits so well your poem Lydi.
