Roman Holiday


For you have been given
a gentle place
of quiet pages
to rest your thoughts and ideas

Clean sheets
to capture
dreams,
memories...
the moments of your life

Within you
lies the heart
of an artist
may it always beat
with the passion
of your written words

May these words
that have yet to be composed
take you on journeys,
provide you opportunities
and guide you from one
adventure to another

Let these empty canvases
record your joys
and lessen your sorrows
while offering hope
that tomorrow
is indeed another day
to remedy the misteps,
scraped knees and
threatening skies
that all of us experience

Allow yourself
to be inspired
by the silence
of a Saturday night
forgive the absence
of a distant love as

Within you
lies the heart
of an artist
may it always beat
with the passion
of your written words
