The Collector


The Collector


Some people that you meet with come and go;
among the masses few will hold your heart.
But only one collects their inner glow.

He travels far collecting all we know,
the things we like the most- our looks and smarts.
Some people that you meet will come and go.

Your love of life, your joy to fly and crow-
others applaud, admire all your arts.
But only one collects that inner glow.

He’ll make you feel like he’s someone to know,
and that you want to have what he imparts.
Some people that you meet will come and go.

He’s taking all your talents, leaving woe.
This life is not his own, he runs and darts.
And only he collects your inner glow.

This man has lost his own soul long ago,
but yours he keeps in jars and tracks with charts.
Some people that you meet will come and go,

but only one collects your inner glow.
