Words – Written Thursday 14th November 2002 (Aged 27)


let these words hold you
because it is all about what i feel
my feelings towards your touch
like the key to the souls own lock
these words are the warmth
the missing line even that odd sock
these words will hold you
they are the purest gift
the summer sun shining bright
the best friend that you miss
they are the jumper worn in the winter
the boots that walk through snow
the most loyal hunter,
these words will not let you go
they are the charm and the luck
the feeling that greater poets
have felt and identified as love
hold them, stroke them, feel them
let them throw open your gates –
when you asleep
and when you are in darkness
they will be the hope that you need
