A Piece of You

I promise never to let it die
No matter the reason of why I cry
It’s not mine or yours, but a part of a little thing I call my heart
I’ll carry it around where ever I go
And, like a light, I will let it glow
Like putting in my chips, I got to call
Even if I fold this hand, the bet is never small
I’ll let it live in me as long as I live
And die with it when I got nothing left to give
The road to love blocked my way
I’ll find a way to you to say
I’ll see you around if not ‘til death depart
If I stop breathing, at least I still have your heart
-Tom Wall

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
