The Anonymous Friend
An anonymous review left me something,
Something more precious even than gold.
It hurts that I cannot say thanks,
That she cannot be thanked or told.
I wish I could say thank you
To the one who said I flowed.
She also said I that I rhymed.
In the review that lifted my load.
A load of burdens so hard to carry,
A load that drug me to the ground.
I don't know why it lifted me so,
I just know my groove was found.
From a funk that I was lifted,
It somehow raised my troubled spirit.
I could not write or send my praise,
So I write this poem that she may hear it.
I thank you whoever you are
For what you sent without knowing.
It brought me back, I say again.
It helped me get my words flowing.
A/N: Dedicated to the anonymous review, Carrie(), for the wonderful review that so lifted my spirit. Thank you again.
