Living Through Your Words

May the world see the person in your writing
For the person, you, is buried there so deep
May the world see the person in your writing
Allowing chances and friendships then to keep

May the world see the light within your writing
As it shines so brightly, blinding all who see
May the world see the light within your writing
Allowing you, the person, to stand free

May the world share the pleasure of your writing
For in each line, there are images on display
May the world share the pleasure of your writing
For between each line there’s so much more you say

    When there are hidden messages inside poetry, some very rare, and few, people dig a little deeper for the real meaning. There are others that just take things at face value, and never look at the words between the lines. You have the amazing ability to shoot straight to the heart of the meaning, at least in my words you have. Thank you for being my friend.
