Beautiful


He makes me smile,
...for a while.
He makes me cheerful
...instead of fearful.

But I am no goddess,
And I am not modest.

I take his affection,
but give no detection,
of my intention to leave,
And I let him believe.

That I will be there,
That I will care,
That I am the only one,
But I was just having my fun.

'She is so bitter! '
But I'm not a quitter.
I never gave up my fight.
I loved him into the night.

I loved him all the day long,
I let love sing it's song,
But when it was time for the end,
I did not pretend.

And I left him with a smile,
That he kept for a while.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
