heart of the book leaves background

A cherished friend for life, 
My perfect companion in solitude.
Its wonders seized and enlivened
In precious moments of quietude…

A glorious world invades mine,
Ages and centuries entwine.
Words weave a fantasy universe,
My Self is lost in time.

Each breath, laden and suspended,
Emotions, unrestrained and bare,
Every moment brilliantly sublime,
For this world, I do not care!

Books – you are a safe haven,
A confidant always to be found;
In the touch of crisp or yellowed pages;
Intensely, and lovingly bound!

Amidst life and many commitments,
Books, you are a joy untold.
A world of  passionate exploration,
Within you, I unfold!
