As a poet, I was born
to write within the night.
For that is where I find my inspiration,
so that I can see the light.
The light to tell you how I feel
and tell you why I feel it.
I love to express my way of feeling
with those who may or may not feel it.
For those who know that way of feeling,
love and appreciate the truth.
And those who may not know of it,
should know that there are many who do.
It’s a chance to bring a world together
that sometimes needs to know
that even though the world is cold,
we feel that love still grows.
And that even though the world is kind
and can offer a sweet romance,
there are those of us who felt the pain
from giving someone a chance.
So as I go to lay to rest,
I say this before I do.
I love to write within the night
to bring my world to you.
