The Smallest Most Powerful Tool

I hold you close to me and I don't know why.
You give me strength and purpose I can't deny.

Like a dry sponge, you allow me to pour,
My soul into you and you never close the door.

You are part of me, like my arm or my hand,
So tired I become, can't even stand.

My eyes glass over with water from my tears,
Doing this with you helps me fight my fears.

I hold you so tight, with the grip of steel,
Never to let you go, so strong is my will.

Through you my friend, I can do anything,
Compose music, write a book, or even sing.

With a delicate hand, I keep you so sharp,
I can put you down to paper and then we can start.

    You just gave me a great idea for a new writing. I'll be sure to post it when it's ready. It'll be called "No Contest". This is a very, very touching piece. Excellent job!
