Thinkie has a heart as big as any that has ever existed. I guess that is why she took pity on me an brought me home one cold night. She wears her heart on her sleeve and shows it to everyone. So when two friends are in crisis she can not sit idly by and watch. She jumps in with her soft little heart and unmatched listening ability and tries to help. This poem was written for her by Angie Stromfield after one such episode. Angie captures 'true essence and she sees what I see everyday.
I see the clouds rolling in and oh how it looks like rain
And it is always I fight for the welcome change
When it rains it pours on this heart of mine
So, I take the storms I feel to her each time.
It's for me that she pushes away her own rain
But I know she has lived under her own pouring rain
Yet under her water her heart still doesn't change
She can walk away from what hangs overhead
And, not in her storm, are words left unsaid.
Not in her storm have I ever felt alone
Her storm ends, so I, may find my way home
So, that I may find comfort in calling her name.
She lives in this world for the sake of another's heart
God, how she eases the miles when worlds apart
And she never wanders when your world falls through
Not ever in her storm would she do this to you.
She has wings that I know not only I can see
Cause only an angel could find strength to carry me
It's the way that the eyes can surely view
How her heart's written so clearly in what an angel can do.
Not in her storm is her work ever done
And even in her storm she hands me the sun
When her world is dark - I always have light
And now how I hold the new color of night.
She takes then she gives to an unhappy face
So that many can find an awesome place
I have been able to love her more every day
And with her hand in mine the clouds roll away.
Not in any storm that I will ever live beneath
Could ever change what I hold here inside of me
Not in any of her storms have I lost my angels touch
To that angel out there, I love her so much
A dear Friend to all Thank you Thinkie....
Thank you Angie for writing this for the most wonderful woman I have ever met. Thank you for allowing me to share with my readers.
