She sits at her desk like a Flower in full bloom
Whilst others around her despair in their gloom
Always so busy, and never 'cross word'
Never repeats, whatever she's heard
Moving so quietly like she wasn't there
Wherever she goes fragrence 'sweet' fills the air
Ingrid, dear Ingrid, what would we all do
If the day ever came, in our lives without you?
Just walking along causes all hearts to stir
And many a mans thoughts 'just a moment with her...'
Your beauty and loveliness beyond all compare
A thousand words 'never 'show beauty so rare
Whenever you're near, a 'symphony plays'
Which fades in the distance as you walk away
Ingrid, dear Ingrid you seem so alone
As quietly you work, then leave to go home
One day perhaps, if you're ever free
I'll take you to lunch. just you and just me
To just get away from 'those people' around
Whose dark Hearts so cold, where jealousy abounds
To whisk you away for one moment in time
Where you can relax and yourself, unwind
Cos just like a Flower that blooms after rain
I so want to see you, happy, again..

    What a sweet piece for a beautiful person. Ingrid is indeed a special lady and she deserves such a beautiful dedication. She has an open heart, welcoming to every new person, reads each poem with heart, comments honestly, always encouraging others. Great poem and much appreciated.

    Peter this was beautifully and eloquently written about a beautiful and elegant lady.
    never has anything bad to say about anyone and is always possitive and encouraging.
    Well done

      Ingrid is indeed a very special lady, and I hope my poem in a small way, has done her the justice that she deserves. She is a very special lady.

    Hello Peter,

    Ben is completely right. Ingrid is a treasure of this site and certainly deserves a personal tribute like this.

    Now you have taken her to lunch. Maybe I could take her out, to a museum, or for a nice stroll?

    Take care,
