The Ode to Mister RogersThank you, Mister Rogers
Thank you for the neighborhood
And thank you for letting me be your neighbor
Thank you for the fish, and the food you fed them
Thank you for Picture Picture
Thank you for the trolley
Thank you for make-believe
Thank you for showing me how to roller skate
And to ride a bicycle
Thank you for showing me how they made my toothbrush
And how they make a piece of paper
Thank you for a fun time, when I was feeling sad
And a fun time when I wasn't
But most of all, thank you for helping me believe
For giving me the confidence to keep trying
Thank you for showing me that all things are possible if I believe in myself
That I can do anything
That I can fly to that distant star
Or be the one that finds it
Or help others less fortunate
Or change my own fortunes, to be better than they are
Or defeat my afflictions
Or to pray that someone out there that I don't even know may do the same
And that all I have to be is me, and I can be whatever I want to be
And for that gift, I am
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
