The Artist Within

I am an artist
a creator each day,
In all that I do
In all that I say.

In darkness comes light
showing the way,
to create what I please
on my journey each day.

I'm a writer, a poet
a painter much more,
from music to song
each day I do soar.

Gliding through the heavens
love all about,
the artist within
floats upward and out.

Surrounded by angels
leading the way,
to that place within
where peace lives each day.

In the stillness a voice
so softly descends,
bringing forth the artist
the artist within.
