They say the best people
Never reply,
Only understand

Sometimes those people
Will share
Their understanding

Others will simply
Form a reply
And say it's all right

Yet, there are people
Who take the time,
They think - appreciate
And leave by words
That last forever in minds

But, there's others
Who take no time
To read with thought
And rather leave replies
That to those people
Are the kind, rich
With no meaning

And of those people,
The ones who understand,
There are many in the world
But only few who know it

Sometimes, the best of the best
Are those who don't see
What's in themselves
Despite that their words
Sit right in front of them -
But they're not enough
Never enough

That's just the key
That opens the understanding
Into other thoughts,
Another mind
That allows never replies,
But words that are shared

And the words like that
Are the ones
That never leave the mind


I've met many,
Yet there's always those
Who stand out in a crowd
Filled with the same words

There is at least one
With simple words
Impacted with meaning

And sometimes it's wondered
If it's ever realized
Just how much
Words can mean
When they're expressed
In the way
Of such understanding

Years may go by even
Before a realization
Is set in understanding

Such as another year
That's gone by
With these words
Filling the eyes
Of many readers

Changing the ideas
With a few simple words
That make even other writers
Stop and think themselves over
So, I had an idea for a poem and was thinking about how to write it when suddenly... I notice that somebody's birthday is today. :meow:
So, I decided to form this idea into a poem for a person who has lasted another year of the war they call life - which also means it's been another year of his words being passed around.
Happy birthday :iconkillerlord123:! Since cakes are overrated (TDG reference for the day ;P) have a cookie!
:psycho-cookie:  Okay, maybe not the cookie... ...Maybe cake isn't so bad after all. Cake

such a good poem!
Thanks a lot for this. A great birthday present, that's for sure. :tighthug: I love the way it starts in more general terms and gets more and more specific towards the end. 
I hope I can make it through another year :D

Finally... A gift someone actually liked. :D (SUCCESS!)

My thought process began with the general idea and more and more I started to think of some of your comments and I went back through and made it for you. (Epicness, that rhymed. :D)

I'm sure you will. :D (You have to, and you shall, you will. I'm running out of command words).
Hehe, who wouldn't like it? :)

So you wrote it as it came to you. I'm honored that you thought of me. :D

If this year I got great gifts like this, it's worth surving for another year to get more :D

Well, it is a poem about "the best writers". :)

Amazingly great to hear that. :D
Well, I won't argue with that :D

This actually connects to what happened with me just a bit earlier. That is amazing.

:bow: I seem to be good with those kind of connections. ;P
