Poem -

BECAUSE OF YOU

BECAUSE OF YOU

 

I am a cloud that drifts across the blue
Transforming the face of the sky 
I am here and then I am not
For my life is as a shifting shadow 
Carried by the mind of the wind

I am a drop of water in the arms of the sea
You see me fall from heavens sprout 
But in view of eagles eyes I am lost to the wise 
And have become a force that swallows cities 
And remove mountains from its foundation 

I am a thought, an explosive idea
I love and hate, I create and explore 
I express that which has been hidden from the light 
I escape the claws of gravity 
And leap upon the moon 
I am an explosive thought 

I am an emotion
Embracing your hearts desires and expression 
Feeling your pain and understanding your cares
My tears falls in your sorrow, my voice echoes aloud in agony 
And my heart rejoices in your celebration of joy 

I am many things 
But nothing without you
And everything because of you.

Wilford Barker.

Hi Wilford...What a beautiful celebration and sentimental theme...I love it.  So much changes when we have someone we love to share life with and be a better person from their inspiration and influence.  Great piece. xo ;)

(I am an emotion embracing your hearts desire and expression feeling your pain and understanding your cares) this makes me realise this is what I have wanted to say. That being what writing is all about. You said it for me. Beatlesesk in that palatablity sense.
