Sandi J Holland


Vast And Beyond Number


She wrote, 'How do I love thee? '
I say I know.
She wrote, 'Let me count the ways.'
I say they are vast and beyond number.
For you are so great in my life.
You are the magnificence
Of life come alive, and well.
Expanding joy, peace
And hope.
Life goes on
And we grow towards each other,
And together,
As ways to love merge,
Forever.

    Just like a tree that has countless leaves so is how love is.
    There are many ways to show your love for someone. It is
    not limited to just a few things. Show yours in the way that
    best suits your taste not any others. Very good Sandi. Please

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire

But if it had to perish twice,
