POEM - You Are The Poem

You are the poem she will memorize
And recite by heart;

You are the rhythm she will repeat in
Syncopated breath;

You are the word she will try to rhyme with
When nothing matches;

You are the epic she will lose herself
In when chaos reigns;

You are the measured beat of a sonnet
When her verse is blank;

You are the succinct couplet that ties it
All up into one great bow.

She is the onomatopoeia
Of your heretofore sheltered lives.
