For My Poet

by Soyini Denise Liburd

I really love your poetry!
I read a lot of people's lyrics
My straining eyes fall down their list
of empty words...
I search, but find there's nothing to see
So few have the power to speak to me.

Your words are not empty
Through them I see your soul
I relate to your world
I see it that way too
Your way, my way,... one way.

Telling the people what they need to hear
Making them know that you care
And all the while hoping that they listen
Still, so many reading but missin'
Yet you find the courage to go on ...

I hear what you're sayin' to me.
Keep writing, keep loving...
And always
Always tell me what you see.
