Trouble

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

Seek the heart as long you search wrap it tight in Love's embrace be mindful to it's needs and wants keep it clothed in silk and lace

"
 
My own rendering of ex girlfriend Robyn Cooper and I. She the mother of the little boy Drake, to whom I dedicated my second book.

Tarry not down life's long road

stay quick fleet and true

Weary's the path on which you tread

be mindful of that you do

____________________________

Seek the heart as long you search

wrap it tight in Love's embrace

be mindful to it's needs and wants

keep it clothed in silk and lace

___________________________

Never assume once struck by love

she would not wish you to replace

But learn you hard as she is scarred

the feel of loss from her embrace

__________________________

Take you this from the lips of a sinner

heal the calluses, wounds and sores

The smart man learns from his mistakes

while the wise man learns from yours

Thank you Sharon. I
Have always
Had an eye for things others dismiss. A gift I guess.
Boy, these two lines speak volumes.
"The smart man learns from his mistakes
while the wise man learns from yours."
And the rest is sweet butter on the freshly baked bread. Loved these!

Thanks JE I am if nothing else if not a dreamer. Yet live and learn
great write Tate! killer closing! My older daughter were having a discussion once. She was a fiery 13 yr. old and pulling at the bit. I asked her if she were building her "dream home" .. would she just jump in and do it herself or get help from those who knew how to build homes and had done it before .. I thought it was a pretty good analogy ... she, in exasperation, dropped her hands and said "Dad! I just want to make my own mistakes." :))))))) what can one say right!? Beautiful poem .. plenty of layers of love in it .. were we all so wise to take at their words, those who have gone before. Sometimes we just have to fall, get hurt .. after that life tests our mettle eh!?

Thank you friend
Wisdom in your well crafted stanzas. It is often with reflection we can learn from our mistakes. We all make them. Your final two lines a lesson for all who visit this poem Tate. A happy Saturday to you.

Thanks for steering me to this beautiful poem. Love, even love lost, has lessons for us all. We never stop learning as long as we long as we love, as long as we live. I love your last line, "The smart man learns from his mistakes while the wise man learns from yours." Reminds me of a quote from Picasso, "Good artists copy but great artists steal."
