You showed me how
To read and write 
You showed me how
To sleep at night

You showed me how
To dance and sing
You showed me how 
To praise the king

You showed me how
To laugh and smile
You showed me how 
To run a mile

You showed me how
To study and learn
You showed me how 
To swing and turn

You showed me everything 
And now it's my turn
You showed me everything
And I have learned

And hope can be your sword, slaying darkness with belief."

It's simple and sweet and I absolutely adore it! (: The last stanza is a bit...flat. And the way you break up the stanza's can be a bit choppy, but maybe that's the way you intended it, so it doesn't really matter! Anyway, really, really sweet and it seems to have a personal meaning, so it just makes it that much better! Great work! (:

I liked it as well. And as for your last line, I interpreted it as that person showed you so much, now you want to show them how to do things too. Anyways, good job. 4/5

I don't understand what you mean by the line "And now it's my turn". I like it though, it's simple but it makes sense.

'You can approach the act of writing with nervousness, excitement, hopefulness, or even despair - the sense that you can never completely put on the page what's in your mind and heart. You can come to the act with your fists clenched and your eyes narrowed, ready to kick ass and take down names. You can come to it because you want a girl to marry you or because you want to change the world. Come to it any way but lightly. Let me say it again: you must not come lightly to the blank page.'

Stephen King

I could tell that this poem has a personal meaning to you! It may be simple, but it is good! That is what matters! Great work!

So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

This poem is very simple, but I really like it! It had a nice little beat to it, if you say it aloud, even if everything doesn't rhyme. I especially love that in a poem. That ending to the last staza is kind of a dead beat though. We expect something climatic, but instead you return us to the "learning" aspect when the narrorator is ready for something more. Otherwise, I think it's perfect.

 

Cheers!

"Live your art" -made this one up myself. Simple, but true.

I think this is a cute poem. The last line was a little off-beat though. I still think it is nice and I like how you went from you showed me how to you showed me everything. I think this would be even better if lengthened. Because you could describe in greater detail. On the other hand I too like the simplicity of it and the meaning.

No matter what, this is a poem anyone would love on valentine's day.
