Ode to my Faithful Companion

I write.

Oh, my faithful companion

You take it all in stride

My pain fills your pages, your lines

I'm letting it all out

All of it goes, every single

Tear, kiss, hug

Every short romance

Every love, every hate

I write it all down

Every memory goes to you

I tell you everything

You never complain

Even when I go for weeks

Without a single word

You let me take my time

Let me find how to put my feelings

Into thoughts

Into words

Which now rest on your pages

I must thank you

You have always been there

Oh my trustful companion,

My ever listening notebook

You have set me free
