A poem with a secret…

04 Jan

Can I tell you an obvious secret?

One moment is all it will take.

Something well- hidden yet blatantly plain

To put a smile upon your face.

And to make you feel loved, because it’s true

Realize one thing: that I love you.

I miss you and pray for you every night,

Cherish and think of you when it’s daylight

And hope you and your loved ones are faring alright.

There is more to this poem than meets the eye.  After you read it, go back and see if you can figure out who (or in this case, what) I had in mind when I wrote this.  Please comment if you think you know the answer, and then tell me how you figured it out.

    Figured thats where your heart is, so your poetry probably would be too. The beginning letters was only confirmation. 😀
