May the ink that flows

from the nib of my pen,

forever entertain you.

With words of love;

of life and wonder,

like beams of light

through clouds of thunder.


May the blood that flows

through my hand as it writes,

forever reassure you.

With thoughtful verse

and encouraging rhymes,

to ease you through

your challenging times.


May the emotions that flow

from within my soul,

forever help and cheer you.

With a jester’s tears

and a smile so warm,

to raise your heart

with mirthful charm.


May the life that flows

through my weary bones,

forever keep you guessing.

With a change of mood

and provoking phrases,

my sweetest rewards

are your smiling faces.
