Expression of Hope

by Susanne M. Psyris

My Muse Contest Winner 
you are my muse and always will you be
you're trapped within the very core of me
when loneliness and tears begin
I look for you deep within

you give my words an expression of hope
and comfort me - teaching me to cope
an adjective that comes to mind
reveals the words so hard to find

sometimes there're days and weeks that pass
that you are gone and then, at last
you reappear and breathe life into me
and then the words flow endlessly

your smile embedded in my heart
assures me that we'll never part
