My Promise
(Shakespearean Sonnet)
By Martin Kloess

My dear my love my world my precious soul
Please take my hand that I may bless your life
And be your shield for any future strife
To be that piece of life that makes you whole
That every day you walk through will be bliss
And all your needs I’ll meet to see you smile
An at your feet such wonders I’ll compile
Your dream your heaven paradise my this
But though I dream alas I’m just a man
A man whose dream right now holds only you
Tomorrow’s dream may change oh yes it’s true
But for this dream I’ll do what legends can
All this I wish plus love that will not die
But I can only promise this I’ll try

As with every other part of my life in this world so far, my time in cyberspace has been rather bittersweet.   For I have been led to meet (so to speak) several very ugly people, but from time to time, our Heavenly Father has blessed me with meeting a truly beautiful person.

[Martin Kloess] is most definitely one of those truly beautiful people, and aside from some of the most incredible poetry ever written, his [Poetry and Viral Videos] site contains a lesson on the different types of poetic styles he employs that would normally only be available to those attending an elite institution of higher learning.

Okay, there is also the viral videos part to his site, and this is where Martin displays another incredible talent.  For he can find the stupidest videos ever produced.  Yeah, making cranky people like me even crankier is all part of the joke (I hope).  At least between the great poetry and stupid videos on each post can be found good music (even to me, much of the time).

With my energy level being so low, I am amazed at just how much content he can publish each day under normal circumstances, and what makes it even more amazing is that Martin is suffering from [PLS].  I had never heard of this rare neuromuscular disease until meeting Martin.  He tells me that he can no longer actually speak, nor go outside, but that there is no pain.  Nonetheless, our Heavenly Father can sure make it hard to keep believing in His goodness and mercy while we are still in this world.

Speaking of such, I have been having a wonderful time trying to get the initial listings for the new site directory ready and I do not know exactly when it will be ready to launch.  Hence, there will be no more editions to the [A Sunday Drive] series for the foreseeable future.  There are two [ATF] editions already scheduled for each week until the first of June, and then I will publish another progress update on the new site.  Since I am currently around half done and can only work for a couple of hours a day on average, the launch of the new site may not come until Labor Day.  Hey, I was assured of it happening, but I was not promised it being as soon as I wanted it to.  Sigh.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Margaret!!! Indeed.

  4. Lots of nasty diseases out there.
    Doesn't change God however.
    We await whatever we await from you.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Adullamite!!! Thankfully, He will never change, and all He has done has been for His glory and our ultimate good.

  5. He sounds inspirational to be able to produce such stuff when he is suffering from a horrible disease like PLS. I will check out his site. You'll still be checking in here won't you, till the new site is up. I don't think I have read anything you have written about it in the past, but then I haven't been around much in the last couple of months.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Jenny!!! Yes, I still check my email each day and go visiting my friends every week or so in the hope that they will not forget about me. The new site is a directory with a couple of things that will hopefully make it stand out.

  6. "Martin displays another incredible talent. For he can find the stupidest videos ever produced." That truly is a great thing to make others laugh and find humor.
    May God be with Martin as he completes his journey.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Susan!!! I would do well to better follow his example.
