*The Sun*

Trisha M. Barrek  Hopkins

I bring warmth to those cold 
I bring energy to those weak 
No one believes in what they are told 
They only search for what they seek 
I help many things grow 
Without me so many would die 
I help out so much in life's flow 
I just sit here in the morning sky 
Exactly what my purpose not many know 

I brighten up lives after the rain 
I make most happy I take away pain 
I ask for nothing I have nothing to gain 
I just leave a warming stain 
And for that most are thank full 
I just ask don't stare 
You will get more then an eye full 
You will get a strong lasting glare 
So for your eyes take care 


After the rain I can help with the rainbow 
Dry up after a flood 
I put a glisten to the first fall of snow 
I dry up unwanted mud 
I'm always wanted around I've been told so 


After the showers 
That come and go 
I bring comfort to the drenched flowers 
Everything has a beautiful side that I hope they show 
Nope I don't have special powers

Hello, I have been reading

Hello, I have been reading your poems but the rhymes disconnect me a bit. Do not let that bother you as I am not a cadenced poet. Just personal preference. To me it often detracts from the flow of true emotions. Also, I do not know if this is your style, but the font in the first verse or two of what you write always appears different by @ 1.5 – 2 points. It can be a little distracting. Finally, in this poem sometimes you use “I” and other times just “i”. Not sure why? Actually this is an older poem (2002) but close to half the lines begin with "I". Still, I do like your sensitivity and stream of sentiments. I hope you keep posting. Thanks.
