At This Moment
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Showing that we care.

Our feelings we should share.

Not waiting for something to go wrong

Showing our feelings is right.

We all feel sad.

When things go bad.

Feelings are for showing all the time.

Not just sometimes.

At this moment......

Good evening Barb! At this moment......the birds are chirping away outside! Don't they make lovely music? Your poem, "At This Moment" brings out another divine message on emotions!! This also reminds me of remorse....How some people go to court to hear their sentence, and show no sign of it...Nobody should want to have a stone heart, or act like a robot...Because first; robots can't love, because they don't have a heart, therefore they can't do anything that's relative to feeling.. Thank you for that inspiring message, which always captivates my attention!! Good poem Barb, good poem! (SMILE)

so right you are on the subject of "At this moment"..anything could happen, i may lose my chance of expressin' whether i step off the elevator at work or jump into my car, unsaid words should be shown at all times not just when life throws us a curve, because sometimes we may be in the middle of that curve... so i'm takin' your advice..startin' from this moment on...thank you doll!! God bless you!! Terrie*

If, you love the world around you, then you care


When someone is crippled, and struggles for a chair, I want to be there. If a child falls from their bike, and begans to cry, I want to be there. If a woman bears children from words of deceit and lies, then, she cries, how can I feed them, I want to be there.

Barb, your words have power, like the wick of a stick of dynamite, short, but powerful. As I look around and see through your eyes, I realize, If, I want to help myself, it will come from a stranger, I never knew, yet, gave my love.
