What I Can Do for You
Kelly Murphy Moreton


I cannot give you possessions.
I can promise you passion.

I cannot guarantee you security.
I can make you smile.

I cannot open doors of opportunity for you.
I can expand your imagination.

I cannot dissolve your concerns.
I can strengthen your spirit.

I cannot change the world in which we live,
But I can encompass you in love.

Powerful in its simplicity, poignant in its truth. Well done, Kelly.

Sometimes a poem does not have to rhyme or follow any strict rules of what a poem should be...This is one time that meets that criteria exactly...Good work Kelly.
