    A line from a poem is sticking in my head and I can't find out what the poem is using Google search. The line is
    " I hear a voice, is it my own?"
    Anyone have an idea what it is?

    Hi, hoping someone can help me... I don't know the title or author but can remember several chunks of the poem - I'd be so grateful if someone recognises it and could tell me who it's by.............I think it starts............On those long afternoons in the bed by the door in the Clement Atlee ward, when even lucozade cannot replace lost energy.........do you think that you think of the things you did, or didn't do, the words unspoken, the cheek unkissed.....lust, was it, or love?Was it false or true? Who cares now, dying you'll grieve for the things you didn't do (there are certainly chunks missing as I can't remember all of it!) .........take any chance you get, for if you take it or you leave it, you'll end up with regret...... Not sure I can think of any more but would be eternally grateful if someone knows this poem. Thank you...

    My father passed away recently and my mother is having the following line she remembered from a poem, " Somewhere in the darkness, love, your hand will still find mine" engraved on his grave marker.She can no longer find her copy of the poem and I would love to locate a copy for her. I don't know if the line is exactly how it was written in the poem. I suspect it might be the last line of the poem. I would appreciate any help you can give me with this.

    The poem had some of the following lines. I learned it in high school over 35 years ago. What follows is all that I can remember:

    There are some who wait for their ship to come in, for their ship to come in from the sea.
    This question they ask, as they watch and they wait, will my ship come in for me?

    Hey everybody, I'm looking for a poem I once read online for a few hours now, without luck. So I hope someone here might help me.

    I was experiencing Sleep Paralysis, also known as the " Old Hag" Syndrome a while back, got online to find out what it was and found the answers I'm looking for. I also found a poem, which impressed me. Too bad I didn't write it down.

    I'm working on a idea for a film script about this phenomenon, since a lot of people know it and it's such a dramatic experience. Still, only few are actually educating themselves about it or talk about it.

    Anyway... I can only remember a few things about the poem. The thing that resonated with me the most was the end, it went something like this:

    " I light a candle in my room,

    It's quiet, no one's there,

    I'm alone."

    I'd really like to incorporate this peom into the script, but I just can't find it.

    Thanks for your help!

      P.S.: It was an old poem (hence the candle) , so nothing 21st century or even the second half of the 20th century I guess. Thanks!

    Hiyas,
    I'm seeking a poem that I had to read in high school..i believe its fairly old but I can't recall for sure...its essentially listing things about the night that are more tempting then the day and I think its asking if the night is meant for rest and repose why make it more lovely than the day..I would greatly appreciate any information in regards to my so far futile hunt! Thank you so much =)
