From her mind and from her spirit
Her verses flow like wine
Bittersweet and delicious.
With a gentle touch
She holds my hand as she holds my interest
Leading me into sleep
Carrying me into dreams.
Whatever darkness lurks in my soul
And whatever spills from my broken mind
Only she can see who I once was.
Please indulge me.
Compose a poem and tell me
Everything I already know
And all that I've been missing.
Tomorrow won't be the same as today
But the change will be welcomed
With a new verse and a new smile.
Write for me once more.
Let your words pour from you
In the way that only you can do
And write my life happy again.
