YOU INSPIRE ME TO INSPIRE YOU

(Dedicated to Margaret)

by John Yeo

I will succeed. You inspire me to inspire you.

You’re feeding my constitution with total admiration

You realise you affect me through and through.

~

My feelings build on your feelings, heartfelt and true

You lift me up. I’m suffused with inspiration.

I will succeed. You inspire me to inspire you.

~

Since we met, these feelings grew and grew.

I’m searching desperately for causation

You realise you affect me through and through.

~

Our mutual admiration is impossible to subdue

Admiration grows with a slow gestation.

I will succeed. You inspire me to inspire you.

~

Our thoughts come together in a colourful hue

Our relationship is built on a firm foundation.

You realise you affect me through and through.

~

Caring with sharing a love strong and true

An ongoing love with a continuous flirtation.

I will succeed. You inspire me to inspire you.

You realise you affect me through and through.

~

  1. This is beautiful, John. I always enjoy your poetry. Hope you’ll keep writing and inspiring all of us. 🙂 Now as for me, I gotta stop procrastinating and get the prompts done for tomorrow. I can hardly believe how fast this month has flown by!

    • Thank you so much for these few inspiring words ~M. The magnificent prompts you provide sum up another answer to this final prompt of August. I certainly look forward to continuing to unravel them in future. Thank you. 😊💐
