The Greatest Platform--By Pam Murray--Canada

The Greatest Platform

Your footsteps took me places
That I’d never go alone
And all those words of wisdom
Became seeds I have sown.

Your eyes became the visions
That give me joy today
And all those special memories
Still keep the tears at bay.

I miss you every moment,
Yet you stay close to me.
You were the greatest platform
To set my spirit free.

Born in Calgary, Alberta, Pam Murray has been writing poetry since the mid-1960’s.  She was married for over 41 years and has two daughters, a son-in-law, and a grandson.  Pam has been published in a variety of venues.  Her proudest writing accomplishment was a poem she wrote for a United Way fundraiser, which was later framed with a French translation and hung on the wall of the legislature in Ottawa, Canada.  To her, poetry is a transposition of a vision she sees in her mind.  Writing and crocheting are her passions.
