A Poet's Heart


A poet's wandering heart is precious
Only to a few eager souls, who hear
Their heart's songs echoed in his words.
That's why to them, the poet is so dear.

A poet's heart cannot be possessed
By a single soul mate entwined or not,
For a poet's heart is free to wander,
From heaven to earth without a thought.

Poets enjoy a unique friendship
And fraternity at home and abroad,
Their words can cheer wistful minds
And bind by friendship's invisible cord.

    We poets wander the universe in verse, letting our words travel freely all over the world,
    yet never losing the invisible cord that connects us. Truly outstanding poem Khairul! ! Love
