My Compass


You are my one true north
No matter where you are
That is my north
You are my north star

I suppose that it has
Always been this way
I'm sure I always
Want this to stay

I can always find you
Just follow my heart
And there you are
No matter where I start

Even if you are south of me
I follow my heart, not my brain
And I always end up at your side
Its something I cannot explain

But I know I don’t want
It to ever change
Don’t you know that my
Feelings have been rearranged?

Yes, they have and put
You at north, this I know
And I think everyone can see
Because I always let it show

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This one is for Tom Neville. I had this thought as I was walking to see him the one day, it was a thought that stayed in my head, even a few days later. So I wrote it out, and it came to be what you see. I love him with everything that makes me, me.

What a lovely compass

What a lovely compass Chrystal! This encouraged me to write a simple poem for you:

Let your heart be your compass,
so you will stay in the Northern path.
Let your head be the Eastern sun,
so you can see where your hopes lie.
Let your eyes be your west,
so you will know when to rest.
Let all your senses be your South,
so can find yourself to direct you
to your heart's true destiny.

Thank you Crystal for being the inspiration of this poem.
