Joe Dawson

A friend through and through

Betray not the moment with

Blusher and brush, eyeliner,

Mascara, a girl in a rush …


Not quite the tone I had in mind.


Truth is I promised a lady I’d write,

With some heartfelt emotion, some

Words she might like, and so here

You find me in thought at my desk,

Where promises made, will be promises



In the beginning there was a word

And the word was poetry, a word that

Meant so much to so many. In the

Beginning the word was lost for a name,

Many pondered the subject and soon the

Time came to Christen this most sensual,

Most meaningful of all words, and the

Name chosen was love.


Come my sweet distraction and I will

Write you a dream. I will disrobe

You with words and although you have

Never seen me you will fall in love with

My words and I with yours. I will bathe

You with words, paint you with words

And you will feel my words coursing

Through your body. There will be nowhere

My words haven\'t touched before finally

Coming to rest in your heart.


You may not be an angel and maybe

There are none and if there are none then

The world is a poorer place, but I don\'t

Believe that, for I am a dreamer and when

I dream my dreams include angels, and I

Have seen you there.


Inspired by a light of extraordinary

Power, I will finish this work with,

A smile in my heart, you’re a girl in a

Million, a friend through and through,

My poetic side is enhanced knowing
