It is food for my soul,

Inspiration for my work.

It fills me with the love of life,

And shows me the joy of sharing.

It is a gift to hold but

Never to keep, as it is meant to be shared.

It shapes my poems

And my dreams.

It turns my world

And dries my tears.

It helps me to trust

And teaches me to be trustworthy.

It shows me the light in the dark

And convinces me to have hope for the future.

It holds my heart

When no one else will.

It shares my pain

And cries with me in the night.

And when this life is over,

It will show me the way home
