Lori, I too am looking for the Dragon!


smile.gif smile.gif


Lori, Was the Nightmare before Xmas,
And all round the house,
Nothing was stirring,
Not even a mouse! (sound familiar)
I peeked over my covers
And what did I see?
A strange looking Solid,
That stared back at me.

I trembled with fear
As I asked for it's name,
'I think you must guess it!'
The Solid exclaimed,
'I'm here for a reason,
Not just the rhyme,
And the PLEASURE is yours,
I'm afraid it's not mine!'

I looked at it questioningly,
This wasn't quite right
To wake up to Solids
In the dead of the night!
'OK I will help you
To find out your name
But then you must leave me
(I don't mean to complain),
My life at the moment
Is turmoil and strife,
And Solids I don't need
To upset my Life!'

The solid smiled knowingly,
'I know what you mean.
In life we have options
And in mine I have seen
That things don't run smoothly
Or according to plan,
But you must think positively,
I'll help if I can!'

I smiled at the Solid,
No longer afraid,
And felt he was right
With the candour displayed.
'We'll find out your name
As it's quite plain to see
That you are our friend,
And what's right now will be'.



The Solid moved slightly
And then bowed it's head,
'Remember these words
And all that I've said.
Remember the good times,
Don't harp on the bad,
Remember your loved ones,
Try not to be sad.
My purpose in life,
Is to bring love, not pain,
So next time I visit
Just find me a name.....
I'll watch this board closely
To see what you find,
Be kind to each other
And all of mankind........
We all have our moments
Of Joy and Despair,
But I must spread happiness
For that's why I'm here.........................!

Jacky, thank you for sharing your lovely thoughts and what I feel is a heartfelt poem. (Does the little solid have a name? I think we'd all like to know him better. biggrin.gif ).

Jackie now I know why you are my dear friend!!!!!!!
xxxxxxxoooooooooxxxxxxooooooxxxxxxoooooooxxxxxxxoooooo

Night had now passed and the sun came around
Still nothing had moved there wasn't a sound

But when the sun shined in something sparkled like gold
What was so beautiful coming from the nights dark fold

Pink and blue, silver and green tints and a shade
Presented themselves as the shadows did fade

Just what was this treasure that was lighting the room
Replacing the black darkness of silence and doom

Of course without question the answer was clear
It was a heart filled with friends found in abundance here!
