Some things that I am

I am small
In a breath that surrounds me
Under an overturned sky
And an understated syllable of splendor
An unspoken "Oh" of awe
Overjoyed and undeserving

I am simple
In a thesaurus of imagination
Ingrained, embossed and inlaid
In ivory; a word of a perfect few
Meanings...of few purposes...
The perfect meanings, the perfect purposes.

I am satisfied
As a thread in fabric
A fantastic fortune
The future as seen by thousands
Of small, simple
And overjoyed children.

You forgot, "I am nice to have over at your house, Aich."
Come visit when you can, eh?

You're right, Aich. I forgot also to mention that I am Canadian and I am very sweet.

I don't know how much truth is in this poem. I'll need to think about it a little more.

Very nice, but sounds like the lines on a Uniqlo t shirt, you should make a song about it.
