Words on the Page.

These words go onto the page,

They bring joy to me.


Words can express my emotions,

They can express my sadness

That has come into my life,

But I know that sadness will go,

As I know my life will move on.

My words will bring me,

Bring me into the light,

The light of joy and wonder.

No matter how bad life is

I will find happiness

As I write these words,

These words on the page.

      It has been written many times that writing poetry is a kind of self therapy. It certainly is for me and quite plain that it is for several others on here.

      I think that placing our own words into poetry somehow orders our thoughts on a subject. The same might be said of personal prayer too. Although i seem to have hit a dry spell in my writing i am confident that, like you, i shall continue to commit my life thoughts into the written word upon a page.

        Yes d a, it is very true, writing my words has pulled me through the bad times due to Joyce's dementia, I could and can get lost in words which is so therapeutic

              Yes, music and words...
              the cleansing of emotions!
              It takes some time to accomplish,
              but it can be done!

              Reading your writing is always helpful.
              Thank you for sharing.

              My love to Joyce and to you!
