Poetry speaks for me, a poem for @BasilioToni by Tracy Diane Miller

When I find a person
Suffering from pain
Poetry speaks for me
My desire for comfort that might be gained

My feelings are wrapped
In a poem
I let the words be a guide
For the sincerity of emotion
Has no need to hid

I want to offer hope
Across cyberspace
A poem is my footprint
My heartfelt embrace

Poetry speaks for me
Please know it is true
I write this verse
To give directly to you
