a letter to my lover


your love is a gift
i treasure more
with every passing day,
i resound every bit
of your symphonic song
with every lasting say,
like rainbow; a gift
i adore your song
in the rainy day,
you are the color to my eye
to see the beauty in you
and your love i pursue

the night is falling
and my heart is calling
because i feel so lonely
and i need you only,
and i knew
your love will find its way
through paths where
lions fear to prey,
and when you do
find your way soon
in all soul by the moon

you are my souvenir
if it be to find
and call thee mine,
love,
thou art every day
my dear love,
i shall fall in love
hard on my knees o' love
soothingly crawl
as i call
for your love

i miss you nana

yours in love.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
