Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

My friend,
I cannot wait to see you again!
To converse excitedly with you
About everything and nothing.

I have forgotten the color of your eyes,
And your hair,
And how you look when you smile.

When summer turned to fall we were parted.
All winter we kept our friendship alive through the written word.
And because of it we are closer.

I want to see you.
To hug you.
To smile at you.
Because of you.

I am so excited to hear you’ll be here soon!
I cannot wait to see you!
In fact I almost wish you were here now
…But then I wouldn’t have time to finish making your present.

I’ll see you soon.
I’ll be waiting.
Waiting here to hear your tales.
Waiting here to tell you stories that can only be told in person through exaggerated facial expressions and hand gestures.

It seems Spring has come.
Spring is bringing me flowers,
And green grass,
And you.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Again awesome ending and you know now that I've read quite some of these, I know what I like most about your poetry. The fact that it's all so close to your heart and so personal and that every word portrays exactly what your most inner thoughts are.
