Inspired by my wife's love of books.

Let Me Be Your Book

My spine is cracked from old age,
I have torn another tattered page.
My words are worn and dimly faded,
But quietly for you I have waited.
My voice and purpose are still crystal clear.
Forever, I will love you dear.

  The idea of this particular poem I believe is a great starting place.

However the doctor suess rhyming at the end of every rhyme made it feel incomplete and a little like a child wrote it. When you write something it doesn't always have to rhyme; I've learned that something can sound just as good or better in free verse.

I'm not saying its bad but it could better, great start though!
