You are the Reason #whatdoyousee

the world is in need 

of a gentle touch

and a gentle smile,

a kind heart

and a kind reminder

and for whatever reason

you remain my gentle touch 

my gentle smile;

my kind heart 

and my kind reminder

you are after all my poetry

my lovely verses and metaphors

my song, my melody, and my symphony

you are my story

and you are always and forever 

the greatest love of my life





The image shows a baby monkey, admiring the view from above the tree. I could almost see his eyes glow with so much joy. He is so adorable and so cute. And I am reminded of all the good reasons that made me smile amidst the pandemic.

      1. I am so glad you have been able to do that mich. we all need each other though, in these trying times. I am approaching it in the same way as you, though I get my down days. I think we probably all do. Keep going ❤️❤️❤️❤️


  2. This whole year has been a tough year for all…and from Feb to now, really tough. 😦

    Your poem of love is beautiful, heart-touching. ❤ I hope you are back with your loved ones soon, SweetMich! 🙂

    The things you shared in your poem are things every person in the world needs. Those of us who have loving, supportive people in our lives…especially family members…need to pray for those who do not. There are people who are not as fortunate as we are… 😦

    Each day I start by listing everyone and everything I am thankful for! My list is so l-o-n-g! 🙂 I am so grateful! 🙂 And taking just one day at a time is working for me! 🙂

    Please know that so many of us here love you, Mich! And we are here to support you!
    Thank you for loving and supporting us! 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

    1. Thank you so so much Carolyn for all the love that you shared ..i am very fortunate to have you here and be part of my wonderful creative journey…

      Some people may not have the same support system as we do and i pray for them. I pray that they find solace and comfort from and in anything and everything they do.

      When we love, we are joyful. It could be love for our family, friends, work or our passion…what ever it is i hope that we find way to love and cherish what we have at the moment..i also hope we stop avoid complaining all the time as it is not helping.

      I hope the world will heal soon and that humanity will remain the same…

      I hope we should never forget to love and to share that love to everyone..❤❤❤

  4. Oh Mich… I didn’t cry.. (much).. your words were heart-warming and heart-felt… I love your support Mich… my worldpress friends have been my lifeline, in these tough times…. I so hope we can get together one day (me, you, and Gina)… She had invited to Kuala Lumpur, but future plans are out of hands at the moment…. Keep healthy and stay safe 💙🌏😀
