My Mother's Lesson In Empathy

Poem By Aufie Zophy

Usually you can’t shut me up
But oh how words fail me
When it comes to the subject
Of that thing called love
How does one begin to explain
Something so old and primal
More a feeling than a thought

Shall I compare you to something?
Talk of butterflies and hearts
What ever I write of
It could never truly capture it
For whenever you are around
The whole world disappears
And all is bright and right

For a moment in my life
There is no more anguish
No more sadness and troubles fade away
Whenever you are around
You breathe life into me
You helped me discover
There is life within this withered soul

I 've stood in the grass for many an hour
Enjoying a breeze most of all

Y... In The Dark Of The Night (Poem About Hope, Hope, Hope))

A single firefly passes by

My Son

My son, I can see so many good things in you
And here I am really honest and true.
My son, I love it when your caring heart opens wide
When I had a headache you came and sat by my side

X..... A Little Sadness

Reflecting on my life at the end of the week
A tear leaves my eye and caresses my cheek
My ego wants to force a smile, but my soul doesn’t feel the need
This little sadness doesn’t taste bitter; it is sweet

Y..... The Balloon

I went to the sea of love, this noon
I took it and put it in a blue balloon
