My Poem “Taken”

Over the years I have taken people
on a journey with me...
over the years I have literally held
the hand of people and guided them
to places and to things that are important to me...
over the years I have told people things
that only they would know about me...
over the years I have opened the mind
of people to what is impossible,
and I too have been fascinated
by what happens when there is
a coming together of many feelings,
emotions, colours, and expressions
of what makes a difference to the way
that people live, love, think, and believe.

Over the years I have always been someone
who goes that extra mile...
over the years I have always been someone
who would rather leave a lasting impression
in the form of a smile...
over the years I have always been someone
who would spend time doing something
that I knew in the long run would be worthwhile...
over the years I have always been someone
who knew that there was always more
to be known about the substance
of something or someone
rather than their style.

Over the years I have felt drawn
to things, to places, to people
from the moment that I have awoken...
over the years I have felt as if
I am only able to keep ahold
of some things for a short amount of time
before they are forsaken...
over the years I have felt found,
abondoned, made whole, and then broken...
over the years I have felt and I have seen
change happen right in front of me,
I have experienced the arrival
of hope and joy before my eyes,
I have made the most of every moment
that I have been given
and I always try to return the favour
of whatever or whomever I meet
wherever I find myself being taken.
