Array ( [sid] => 22553 [catid] => 1 [aid] => Mick [title] => To leave me this [time] => 2003-08-31 17:45:00 [hometext] => I went with a friend to visit his mother.
she said I reminded her of someone.
As we talked, she said she mostly just remembers. in the conversation, her thoughts. [bodytext] => A winters day,
to remind me of warmth.

A thought of love,
to remember the heartache.

A cloudless sky,
one summers rain.

A tear to shed
from aging eyes.

Your hand to hold,
to share humanity.

I venture close,
placing my hand in her`s.

And listen to stories
from an aging woman.... Crow

A thought of love,
to remember the heartache.

A cloudless sky,
one summers rain.

A tear to shed
from aging eyes.

Your hand to hold,
to share humanity.

I venture close,
placing my hand in her`s.

And listen to stories
from an aging woman.... Crow

If only we could understand the beauty of words and the meaning they hold to be true. I can't even begin to describe what this poem has done for me. A man can talk... but can he ever just listen? //amy//

The aging woman has left you treasure
Its use is more than just for leisure
Keep her wisdom close at heart
You can use it in your art...
