May the ink that flows

from the nib of my pen,

forever entertain you.

With words of love;

of life and wonder,

like beams of light

through clouds of thunder.


May the blood that flows

through my hand as it writes,

forever reassure you.

With thoughtful verse

and encouraging rhymes,

to ease you through

your challenging times.


May the emotions that flow

from within my soul,

forever help and cheer you.

With a jester’s tears

and a smile so warm,

to raise your heart

with mirthful charm.


May the life that flows

through my weary bones,

forever keep you guessing.

With a change of mood

and provoking phrase's,

my sweetest rewards

are your smiling faces.

Hear hear! You have exactly the right attitude in how you
view your work and your hopes for its effect on readers.
I particularly enjoyed the the rhyming pattern in these
lines. Nice to be raised up in spirit.
Give me good humour's trusty broom
To sweep away the doom and gloom!
