For I am a Writer

For I am a Writer

If I was a better songwriter,
I'd create a masterpiece-
A flurry of orchestrated glory
Melodic synchronicity
Unparalleled in the world.

If I was a better sculptor
I'd capture perfection-
A moment of Natural Wonder
Simplistic beauty
The heart of our world.

But I am not these things,
For I am a writer, so
I'll capture a moment-
With Natural Beauty (you)
Simplistic Synchronicity (us)
The world unparalleled in our hearts.

And while this page is not
As pretty as a melody
As graceful as a sculpture
It is something much more-
It is yours.

This is a love letter/poem I received on my 20th birthday from a boyfriend, now a friend and sometimes-lover.
