Poem for a Friend

I wrote this poem for a friend in India, Mukti Masih – a Christian, chai-totaler, published poetess, freelance writer, business Head of Content, and, someone who inspires me. I encourage you to visit her web site.

If I were married
With kids and a lot
I’d wish for someone
Who has what she’s got

A thoughtful woman
Beautiful and smart
Who cherishes God
Through faith in her heart

So splendid the words
In poems wrapped with love
And hope, which she shares
Endowed from above

She’s a role model
By the name Mukti
Writing with impact

Please visit her site
Your company, too
For content that works
Perspective anew

    He is a kind person with so much heart
    You can tell by looking at all his art
    A picture is a thousand words they say
    Yet he played with words in his own way

    I am so flattered, I almost blushed
    All my writer’s pride is totally flushed
    For he wrote with such honesty
    Phil’s kindness shone in its majesty

    Thank you Phil
