Your honour and care betray a soul twisting,
Unresolved, still seeking – the poets curse!
Your power with words of many languages
Shows your joy of words – the poets love!
Finding the words which portray our world,
Showing the truth and ugliness for all to see
Requires a courage beyond the everyday;
It needs the seeking soul to look deep inside
And find in self that which he places in others.
Your kindness and humility betray your love,
Passionate, still growing – finding the poets art!
Your search will end when you see and hear
Beyond thought finding joy in her silent voice!
