Show Me A Poet

by BothePo8

Show me a poet of rhythm and rhyme
who weaves us a message with purpose in mind
A maker of magic who writes endlessly
delivering visions to people like me

Show me a poet whose words play a tune
that carry my spirit as high as the moon
Whose words to my ears play a soft melody
entwining today with a past memory

Show me a poet who writes from the heart,
exposing his feelings to me from the start
Courageous, not caring what others may say,
while writing with passion his feelings each day

Show me a poet who plays with my mind
and leaves me in stitches for part of the time
Whose words make me pause and perhaps even think
of peaceful, sweet times or a life on the brink

Show me a poet who beckons me near
with inspiring words that I'm longing to hear
Who touches my soul while he talks to my heart,
his words full of wisdom I've known from the start

Show me a poet whose honesty shows
in all that he writes and in all that he knows
If you will do this, then I will agree
to show you the poet that I'd like to be
