Words from a Poet ~


Kindness in penned words,
written with grace and thoughtfulness
lifting the spirits, lifting the heart's joy

Seeing ones life expressed with careful
selected words, one reads the open lines,
commenting how well written the pain is

It does not take much for the broken spirit
to express eternal drama buried long ago
within a closed cover hiding the pain

Oh Poet, release the painful past, with words
written at a pace barely allowing the pen to rest,
letting go of the remembrance of yesterday

Close the book of days gone by
end the final chapter and rid the mind
of the painful reminders of a lost love

Pen, soothe your words in a forward motion
as the heart grows like a wildflower, strong
against the emotions buried within a dying heart
