Books



Stories and books
Are like passages and doors
That take me to places
I have never been before

Each one makes me wonder
What adventure in it awaits
Between the two covers
I step through its golden gates 

Some characters along the way
Become my new friends
I travel with them
On different paths and bends

 Some of them captivate me
With their rhythm and rhyme
They make me experience
Wonderful magical times

Some make my heart heavy
And bring tears to my eyes
And yet they teach a lesson
That makes me more wise

As I travel through the pages
There is so much that I find
Beautiful worlds and places
And people of all kinds

In between the two covers
 I often curl up and hide
As I journey to exotic lands
Far out and wide

To some people a book maybe
Just pages and nothing grand
But to me it always is
That very special friend

So stories and books
Are like passages and doors
That take me to places
I have never been before
