Linda Ori Poems
There are consequences to everything Intentions have their purpose - So don't deny Or justify -
There was a little fairy Sat beneath a tree - Humming to her tiny self A haunting melody;
' How Do I Reach You?
If I could put it into words - All that my heart is feeling, Would they help to warm your heart Or would they send you reeling?
! DO YOU EVER WONDER..................
Do you ever wonder............... Why lives intersect, React to one another - What makes our hearts connect?
! A Light In The Darkness
In the darkness of your thoughts Created by circumstances Both complex and overwhelming, When no amount of spirits
' One Bright Star
One bright star in the vast unknown A blazing ember in the night sky shone Reminding me that I'm not alone............... One bright star;
' Lean On Me
Sure, you're tough and resilient - able to keep your feelings under control, when everyone around you
FOOTBALL! ! !
Football is my favorite game I love to watch them play - Those tightly muscled butts and legs On an awesome autumn day;
! The Frog Prince
As I was walking through the wood One warm and sunny summer day, I chanced upon a lovely sight A swirl of butterflies in flight;
! I'll Carry You With Me !
I'll carry you with me here in my heart From now 'til forever, we never will part, Though all that we hoped for is now in the past, Your memory lingers -the mold has been cast;
You alone reveal my soul, The intimacy of my deepest thoughts Wrapped around each emotion, Each beat of my heart;
Alone in the velvet darkness, a soul dwells in ignorance
! When All Is Said And Done !
Is this what life is all about? All there is to know... I can't believe I've come this far And still so far to go;
' Infinite Depths Of Heaven
From infinite depths of heaven, warrior clouds ignite the universe to flame.....................

There are consequences to everything
Intentions have their purpose -
So don't deny
Or justify -
Just accept what is;
Momentary flights of fantasy
Highlight the mundane world
Of real life,
Of real strife -
Without dreams, we die;
Every little now and then
This life bestows a gift,
A brilliant light
To set things right -
Fresh life to a dying heart;
Be grateful for the blessings bright
Accept them as they are,
They're sent to you
To see you through -
They are not yours to ...
