You should take me out for a walk one day
Steal my heart take me into the woods
I would sit and watch the rolling clouds
Let you talk…chatter nonsense
Fill the emptiness of lonely hours.
I could forever write poems from your gaze
Rekindle darkness pull out all laziness
From the sun, hang it back where it used to be
After you’ve stolen me
I know I would
A deep dreamless slumber undisturbed
Secretly kept, a refugee
Seeking asylum in poetry.
My bold pen
For the understanding He gives,
I – an enlightened soul
Know from where
And whose song
I was conceived.
