A personal message to all that came to meetup yesterday.

Edited on Sun Aug-06-06 07:30 PM by maddogesq
I am by no means a poet, but this came to me just now. I was fed some tragic news today involving a friend's wife (I was best man in their weeding), and I do this kind of thing to just help me feel better. (This is something I was encouraged to do as a kid by my parents whenever I felt down.)

Anyway, just me expressing my appreciation for having met so many that post here. Sorry to those I left out.

In a park called Heritage,
I did not cross a bridge,
Because then I knew
I was already at home.

I met some special friends,
Who made me think time, and again,
That in this world,
I am not alone.

A ringleader called Sharon,
A pseudo lost soul called Livy,
A mother and daughter,
And a bright star called Nancy.

In tow came Kevin, Amy, Jordan and Daren,
Nancys young workforce,
If thats not encouraging,
Then I dont now what its worth.

There was a mentor called Aldo,
And funny, did you know,
Carrie, Tamara and Barry,
My home folk, walking in the throws.

And theres me, called Dog,
A wanderer on two legs,
And I have been given so much,
Though some think I am a dreg.

This gathering from cyberspace,
With guts and dreams,
Meet in a summer place,
The future is better, it seems.
