The Poet’s Work

All the poet does is 
stand out of the way 
and write each word 
as if it was a gift 
to be bequeathed forever 
to everyone that has ever cried
or sighed or thought never will there be 
a thought or heart slip felt like mine ever again or hoped that love would deign 
to gently touch another with words 
that could never be said again.
