All That Remains


Tonight I will not cry for you
For there have been tears enough

Tonight I will not lie with you
For for now you lie with another

Tonight I will not lose you
For to me, you are already lost

Tonight I will not mourn for you
For mourning only brings more tears

Tonight I will not die for you
For there was a time I tried to pay that price

I grew too distant now distance is all we have
I despaired and despair embraced me
I withdrew from you and now I am all that remains

Tonight I will not cry for you
For you cried too many times.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
