A Friend in Need

Mike is his name
Known worldwide
With friends everywhere
He fights a dark stormy night

He feels so alone
Yet he is loved by all
So many ups and downs
Are his life shortfalls
The day is gloomy outside
No Sun shining in the horizon
He gets up to go to work
To pay the bills and keep his housing

His family loves him so
That he does know
But life is so hard
Full of demands on the go

He needs power to keep going
A pat in the back for the good job he’s doing
Melancholic and boring, a job needs to be done
He would rather be home photo shopping a bum

His heart is set
He does not care if he gets wet
Wondering the streets on a rainy day
With camera in hand, he comes across
A very loving and wise man
That is the man that he would rather be
At peace with himself and his artistry
Taking photos of a world he knows rather well

As if awoken from a dream
This man is Mike Shaw
Loving and caring, he loves all
Everyone who knows him is left in awe

Poem inspired by Mike Shaw
Stay well, you are loved.
