READING

                                           For as long as I remember
                                           I've always loved to read
                                           It didn't really matter what
                                           It all fulfilled a need
                                           A good love story warmed my heart
                                           I traveled through time with history
                                           The comic pages made me laugh
                                           And I always loved a good mystery
                                           Through the pages of books I have traveled
                                           Across oceans and deserts I've roamed
                                           I've not spent a dime on my journeys
                                           And I just close the book to come home
                                           I get to meet famous people
                                           And though I've never set foot in a college
                                           Every book that I read will help me succeed
                                           To expand in wisdom and knowledge
                                           I must say though I do have a favorite
                                           Tis the greatest book I believe ever written
                                           For treasures untold as the stories unfold
                                           It speaks volumes to those who will listen
                                           Its a little of everything rolled into one
                                           Humor, mystery, history and love
                                           All written by one single author
                                           Our glorious Creator above
                                           Someday I might too be an author
                                           I'll never know lest I try
                                           But regardless of whether I'm published
                                           I'll still love to read till i die
