Found Poetry challenge - time to vote

I received some lovely entries, so time for you to read and decide.
Please vote in the comments below. Each poem will have a number, so  please note that in the comments. :)   
I have to say, I know a couple of these people personally, and these poems are deeply personal, which makes them all the more special for me to receive them. 
Thank you all for participating .

poem 1 - Ati

go with me to the light
finding ourselves in nature
put me in your heart
for two special reasons
my life and soul were driven into love
and that, I hope, shall give me peace

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Poem 2 - SC

contemplate my life,
o curious life.
I knew not my heart:
eyes blind.
But see my heart flourish!

Be satisfied, not grieved...
Eyes sparkling, I love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Poem 3 - Deb

A parting soul flies to the sun.
This realm left mourning;
    bold, cureless wounds.
no strength.... no air.... no father.

Now breathe!
             ~pause~
                                   remember.
                                                      Love!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Poem 4 - Lianne

His bones cry 'go with me',
speak what the world should be;
Virtue, soul, great love in all, that grace and hope will teach.
Imagine now my naked heart shall be so ruled by peace
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
poem 5 - Leslie

Far beyond mistrust
I'll give my heart.
Woe , grief, pity are fatal-
my heart shall be valiant.
Away! Flying with grasped hands,
I love!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

#4 gets my vote, although they're all great. I loved this idea and had every intention on entering but time got away from me.

As much as I would like to vote for myself, I have to say number two really strikes a chord with me so you get my vote. All lovely x

This technique is also called "caviardage". Your poems and doodling are always amazing!
