    Joseph! Sweet and touches to tears!
    I wish you were here, dear, I wish you were here.
    I wish you sat on the sofa
    and I sat near.
    the handkerchief could be yours,
    the tear could be mine, chin-bound. (Report) Reply

    An absent lover created this touching and heartfelt work. I especially loved stanza three, its distinctive in its tone. A good choice for today. (Report) Reply

    What's the point of forgetting
    If it's followed by dying? (Report) Reply
