Trying to give hope and inspiration
"May I Write For You?" by jaybird1
It's not money, power or fame,
that I search for, tis not my game.
I can't afford expensive things
that hopefully, peace and joy brings.

I can't offer diamonds or cars,
the things that are our great desires.
You see, I lie awake at night,
with pen and paper, then I write.

I write in hope it will inspire,
will set alive life's inner fire;
So, let me write a poem for you
and if it helps, I'll write you two.

I trust by now and don't you doubt-
I'll write until my time runs out.



Author Notes
I find writing to be inspirational for both the writer and
the reader-jaybird
