If You Have A Moment
Author: ShyHeart


Iíve seen a Rainbow and a Lightning Bolt
At the same time, share the skyÖ,
Iíve felt the wind blow, and dry the ground,
Beneath, my bare feet

Iíve felt the touch, of someone special
Then, felt it disappear, if, you have a moment,
Let me tell you, something about my lifeÖ,
Got it all wrapped up, within , the passing of the years

Iíve skipped a rock, across a creek
Laid a kiss, upon my ladyís cheek
Saw, my baby born
And her tiny heart, made me weep

Seen taxes go so high
Made me think, of Pikeís peak
Iíve flown a kite and my mother cried
Get in here, if lightning strikes, you will fry!

Heard a baby cry, when, my wife died
The tears, came from, my eyes
Heard a friend say, you will be okay
Life, is just this wayÖ,

Saw a rocket, take men, to the moon
My soup is ready, canít find a spoon
The phone is ringing, its our girl
Hi, dad, how are, you doing?

Let me tell you something,
About this life of mine
Got it all wrapped up,
With the passing of the years

Iíve seen a Rainbow and a Lightning Bolt
At the same time, share the sky
Iíve felt the wind blow, and dry the ground,
Beneath my bare feet

"If, you have a momentÖ,"

Poem Of A Life-Time...,

Thank You Ben,

I'd say this is a poem of a Life-time, that time was mine. Had a lot to say, couldn't find the words, and I really tried to get the feel in every line, to express, this life of mine.

But, hey, its not over, I may still have time, to write another line, for you, and all of those other, friends of mine.

Thanks Ben,
P.S. Angle Laney is very good, I wonder, is she adopted? I mean, I have read your work, and I know the pit, where-in my lines lie, but after reading Angel's poems, well, just wondered?

Of course, I'm not serious, this line is for the readers who don't know, that Ben and I are, fairly, reasonably, sort of, kind of, never met, except on the net, but good friends!

Name:                                           Remember Me
