My path pursued …
My Muse…my path in life
Venerated, I remain in your charge,
your words my troth, your will my edge, my path,
and no matter where life guides this heart,
in your debt I shall always be,
through your eyes I shall always see.
For you are my muse, my being renewed,
my path pursued in life and after,
for words like feathers float above my soul,
to be plucked so timely
and painted whole upon my thoughts.
How glorious this precedence,
to emote those thoughts that tend the soul well,
and in exacting this learned tryst,
a sentient acknowledgement,
the uplifting of a mind.
So kind my muse,
together we forge pathways of unexplored terrain,
where minds wander not, from fear,
yet pathways beckon and I with your address,
safe to walk the steps so heartfelt, kept.
And words grow like blooms around my mind,
nurtured by your tender care,
and thoughts spring like babbling brooks
from deep within,
finding with joy what was I, to begin.
