One of the pieces I’ve carried with me since I found it. It floated to the top in the flood. I can’t remember what I clipped it from, but it hung on a bulletin board for quite some time and is going back there.
FLOOD FLOTSAM: This is a poem I found in the flooded basement debris. I wrote it in high school. I like it because it’s about finding love but not necessarily romantic love. I’ve always found incredibly deep love in friendship.
Someone special in your life
is what every somebody needs,
even if they’re kept deep inside your heart
and only come out in your dreams.
When all the others shake their heads,
turn their backs and walk away,
there should always be somebody standing,
someone special left to stay.
Through all unhappiness,
for all the times you cry,
someone special is there with a smile,
to dry your tears, to be on your side.
I’ve found this someone special in you.
Who else could there possible be?
You’re the only one in this whole wide world
Who makes me see someone special in me.
Wishing someone special for all of you!
Love love love!
