I’d Rather Be Like Him (poem)

Updated on August 14, 2015

I‘d rather be a lot like him

He always has some time to share

You need an ear he’s always there

And there’s his smile it’s never dim


A call for help he’s first to stand

His eyes see only hope and good

Not lost in things misunderstood

His every act so smooth and grand


To him they turn yes one and all

What wonders will come from his hat

And can they have a part of that

He smiles for them and dares not fall


So many people’s lives he changed

He showed them how to do the same

While they took pictures for their frame

For them his life was rearranged


Through all it’s him I’d rather be

Not here alone trapped with my thought

This lonely soul that’s bound too taut

The real live person they can’t see

Music only

      This poem brings about so many thoughts. My head traveled from The Pied Piper, to God, then fell upon a lonely soul. The music is beautiful, relaxing, and peaceful.
