My Mentor

My Mentor
My Mentor

Thank you

A phenomenal word

Carrying feelings deep

Have you really heard?

I am sorry

Three words of regret

The times I resisted

Gratitude is my debt

I honor you

Your wisdom sublime

Carrying me through

Being with me all the time

I love you

My heart does swell

Thoughts of your truth

In our friendship I dwell

This is my response to a prompt at: http://dversepoets.com/

The Prompt:

“So here’s my idea for Poetics: write a poem to someone you love, telling them how much you love them, or how much they mean to you, or all the things you want them to know before it’s too late. Even if you can’t say it to their face. Even if you will never show them the poem. Write it all down anyway.”

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Just wonderful, Carol. You have really touched on those important things that the dying and their loved ones need to say to one another. When I was a hospice nurse those were exactly the conversations we tried to facilitate. We hope to see you here often. You have a lot to shared.
