A POEM ABOUT A POEM

 

A poem about a poem

Oh, let me seeā€¦

I stop along the road

And I wait for it to catch

Up with me

 

Tell me who you are

And what business

You have with me

You say you are a “counter”

You will count the tears for me

 

You say you are an “explorer”

And you will help me “see”

You say you are a “master”

You will hold my thoughts

For me, until I am able to

Hold them for myself

 

You say “you like to play”

And you never know for sure

Exactly where you are going

You are big enough to hold

All of the thoughts unspoken

 

You are a “good friend”

And promise to always

Be there for me

To have and to hold

From this day forward

Until the end of days
