Words - Poem by Gary Revel

A poet's day is filled with words
But oh such words
As you have never heard

They come like majesty
With so much pomp and fuss
Monarchs bow and leaders of great nations
Stand in awe

I have known the words for some time now
They're all my friends

Servers and lovers are they
Warming my nights
With the sunshine of happy days

Guiding my way with the wisdom
Of understanding
Coming and going
But never a second late


You will find your dreams and hopes there
In the letters of their names
The fountains of their springs
The moonlight of their nights
And the brilliance of their smiles
