*World Healing, World Peace Poetry Contest 2012 Winner

I know I don’t know you but I love you!
I know we are not friends but I think a hug will do.
Don’t have enough for your milk, I will pay the rest.
It starts with one act. One simple kindness.
World peace starts small. It begins with one.
With a simple gesture, it has begun.
When we show care and concern, it’s a big deal.
This is how broken hearts begin to heal.
It starts in one little town, on the main street.
We start moving to a rhythm, pulsing like a heartbeat.
It’s a magical sound. It’s a catchy tune.
It spreads around the globe and drifts to the moon.
This is my dream of peace; this is my hope for healing.
It starts on a small scale. It starts with one feeling.
This world is a disaster. It has become a mess.
We need to aim for the stars, reach for success.
We must educate the people; let our voices be heard.
The peace movement has begun; start spreading the word.

Another Valentines, another year.
It hasn't changed; I still want you here.
I can never love another...
So I gave up, Why bother?
You occupy my every moment.
With you, my every night is spent.
In life you were my all,
With your death, I took a fall.
And I am still falling. I have not landed.
I struggle with the loss; I cannot understand it.
My mind knows but my heart can't grasp it.
I scream into the sky; I am still asking:
Why! Why take him from me???
This is not the way it is supposed to be.
We should have never been torn apart,
Me sitting alone holding my broken heart.
Now, I will plead the same thing I always do...
Come back to me baby, I want to spend Valentines with you...
for M.J.S.
