This Love - Poem by Michael J. Burt

she gave me hope and love
just all of the above
from the stars in the sky
to the words of her songs
she gave me Etta and Miles
then i went wild

she gave me hope and love again
then i knew it was love
there was something different about
this love
there was no limit to
this love
and that was the difference in
this love

then she gave me words...
inspirational, real words
that lifted me up, high into the sky

then she gave me words again
i could not spell what she gave me

but she gave me hope
and love
and words
and it was a song,
endless love.
