A Word Of Thanks

A Word Of Thanks short poem

A single word or phrase; a gesture
Can trigger a feeling of wondrous rapture
To be told that you’re worth more than the drifting sands
That daily slip through your trembling hands

To be surrounded by so many appreciative people
Makes me want to shout from the highest steeple
Words of thanks so loud you all know
That for you, the ink will continue to flow

Every word on every page
Written for you, to last an age
And all I ask, with humble pause
Is your smiling face and gentle applause

My words are my gift to you, my friends
May they touch you in ways you can keep till the end
Long may my poems continue to impart
All the love that I feel deep within my heart.

Well said musical refrains of gratitude @dartherino. Its melodious strains, carried through by the rhymes, are on their way to our memories. Bravo.

Trapped In A Word short poem
