Heard the Poet When He Wept

Street Torn, yet still Star Born…

You saw the diamond within and my clothing didn’t matter, my finances didn’t matter, what people might or might not say didn’t matter.

You stood with me when I was on the verge of falling apart.

Street Torn, yet still Star Born…

You comforted me in ways that would have made an Angel Smile, day by day in your own special way.

You saw my Light though I stumbled in uncertainty, because of you I managed to weather my Personal Storms.

Because of you the diamonds that were hidden under my clouds of doubt have begun to surface.

The Warrior who fought self instead of the challenges of life has regained his focus.

Thank you for the Push, the Shove, the Unconditional Love and the Mental Hugs that always strengthen my mind.

Street torn, yet still Star Born.

The streets tried to claim me, the beast tried to change me, until love stepped in, brought its healing powers into my life…

Haven’t been the same since…

Haven’t been the same since….

Restored my wings, heard the weeping in my notes...

Embraced the spirits, let me be me….

Heard the poet when he wept…

Last seen lending a helping hand to someone in need…

Look for the glow that’s how you will know when she is around…
