River of Hearts

My dear beloved
you have my heart
for ever and ever
we will never part

so I am sad for ones
who float aimlessly
at the river of hearts
searching for love
and identity

a little love note to them
from me
never give up the swim
love will happen
it always wins!

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.

    So beautiful… both the words and the poem! you really have a way with words, my friend… i used to tell my daughters that when they would break up with a boyfriend… they would think it was the end of the world… but after our talk, they usually felt much better and within a week or so, they had another one! It’s so wonderful to see and enjoy your work! Barb

  • same here with my daughter, next it will be the grand daughters, maybe I will use this as the example every time we have the talk,,thanks for your lovely comment my friend, peace and love linmarie
