I Thought of You

I’m hurting and was looking for a soft place to land

And I thought of you

I was hoping to see something besides the back of another hand

And I thought of you

When ever I need a comforting thought

Or someone just to hold me tight

When ever I feel that my life breath has been caught

And when I need someone to hold on all through the night

I thought of you

When life gets to me and kicks my heart around

When things get so tough that I just don’t want to move

When I feel as though I’m chased by the hell hounds

When the tracks fell away from all of the little grooves

I thought of you

No one wants to hold me so close

No one else seems to care

Or what I’m thinking, you always seem to know

And you make it better when life isn’t fair

When I need someone to hold me tight

And when things are just flat out getting to me

When I need a soft and loving face in my site

When I want to let myself go, and set my heart free

I thought of you

What homage you pay to this person. To have someone like this in your life, friend, family or lover is a true blessing. And the flow of it...well everyone who commented on it seemed to like, me included.

First off, I sincerely apologize for not answering these earlier, I didn't see them here until just now. I apreciate anyone's interest in my writing and comments and (especially good) thoughts are always welcome. She has both come and gone and is still here though, because I think I wrote it for two women in my life, and one has decided she is better off without me in hers. Thank you for your comments and kind thoughts Rain and Jazzcat, I like the true to romance thought. That part bothered me Stet, and then I thought as you, that it's all good, thanks for reading my work and letting me know your thoughts!

I liked this piece for it's gentle simplicity. I don't know when this was written, but the odds are, she may have come and gone. I hope she saw this sweet tribute. I don't think you meant this one line. "When I need a sift and loving face in my site" Beautiful piece..

I never know what category to put my poems under, this is free verse, right? No formal structure? I hope!
A Word from the Writer
I know it's kind of silly, but when they come to me, if I don't write them down they haunt me, and then if I never shared them (even if I don't like them) I will never know how they are perceived unless I put them out here.
