Day 16 – Classically Perfect

Day 16- Respond to the poem you posted yesterday with a poem of your own.

All the books that you have written I will read,

because I would like to know someday,

that someone did the same for me.

That they took their time to get to know all of my lovely flowers and secret desires.

To flicker through the pages of my good and bad memories.

To relive all the things that hold my essence,

yet respect my secrets, keep closed the books I have pushed back, in my presence.

I will write you into my story and hope that you will do the same.

Because I know how feeling unwanted can cause so much pain.

You won’t be a mere page, a chapter or a book in my shelf,

you will be one of the main reasons why it stands there.

You will hold your own volumes in my infinite rows,

amazing anyone with your beautiful show.

The ink ill use will be everlasting,

so everyone can know you were meant to be a classic.

I will be the friend you never had,

show in our pages that for this you’ll always be glad.
