A Loving Man

If your friend lets you down
and a true love can’t be found,
till the blue skies come around
I'll be sitting right by your side.
So journey far and fly safe,
enjoy this world for it's a strange place
keep that smile upon your face
for when it is not I’ll be right by your side.
Though there may be oceans between us now
I think about you every now and again.
No, don’t forget me, now that we’re apart,
just open up that great big loving heart.
Take your time to embrace romance
and teach your daughter how to sing and dance.
Love may hurt but sometimes it's worth the chance,
If not, I’ll be right by your side.
I hear your laughter and cries too,
all these things I miss of you.
I wasn’t perfect - this I would admit,
always trying to make the pieces fit.
Don’t ask me now that the time has set
for I’ve loved you since the moment we first met.
So many times we have laughed and cried.
Knowing you has filled my heart with pride.
You’ll always be a part of me.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
