Poem - Love for a muse

I Am The Water

The water will make you bloom
Though it will never posses you
Even though it is your desire
You cannot live in it
But you need its touch
Its caress
Its strength
Its life
Then you can live
And show everyone your beauty
The petals bursting with pride
While the water silently vanishes
Knowing your secret
Living alone
But knowing its worth to you
The water draws your radiance
But dies each day
Only to live again tomorrow
Let me be the water
With my eyes
With my words
With my approval
With my love
With the whispers you cannot hear
But can surely feel
Let me give you life
Life that you share with all the others
All I need is my muse...

All too often I read information articles and forget to read for the sheer enjoyment. Thanks Suburban Poet!

Thank you Julie,

I hear you... well this is definitely a "non-profit" site because it appears the world is determined to make their poets starve... apparently we create better with empty stomachs!
