1 Among Few


At long last! !
I have found you once again;
Because, you are '1 among few'!
And, your words still run in me.

Yo re like a saint to me!
An, more than one! !
Because your are '1 among few',
And your words still run in me.

I do remember those days,
But i wasn't matured enough to understand your vision by then;
But noe, i know who you are!
Because you are the chosen one,
And you are '1 among few'.

Your words are the words of light which overcome darkness!
And i am glad to meet you once again after many years in absence;
Because your are '1 among few' whose words touches my heart deeply! !

    Excellent write. Sounds like an old love returning from the past when you were too young to understand. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
