Gift Your Love


Do not concern yourself with
What you will get back.
Reach inside and find
The love you were meant to
Wrap in a perfect bow and take joy
In seeing others open it.
Know that it lights their soul
On the pit of all nights.
It shades their heart
On the fury of all days.
Witness the smiles you receive,
The laughter that floods your ears,
And take pride that hate, jealously, sorrow, and pain are buried
Under all that torn decorative paper.

Steven (tbones) | 408 comments I read this to my wife and she really enjoyed it too. She said you write some very deep and meaningful poems and she thinks maybe someday we should have my daughter co-author a poetry book with you since her stuff is similar. My daughter is also quite the artist and could do some illustration or cover work as well.

That sounds like fun, Steven. Do you have a link to some of her art and writing?


message 8: by Steven (new)

Steven (tbones) | 408 comments My daughter is home for the day so I will talk to her and see if she has anything she's written or drawn up on her Facebook or DeviantArt.com yet. I also have a Deviant page and some work up on my Facebook page. Some of my work is a bit wonky/different but if you ever wanted to use it in some just let me know. My daughter is way better than me though. Talk about art classes that have really paid off.
