Spencer Shakespeare

By your side

every night i look at the stars,
every night i look at the moon,
every night i look up and think of you.
as the cars drove by,
as june flew by,
my point of view changed,
as i no longer sat next to you.
every night i look at the stars,
every night i look at the moon,
every night i look up and think of you.
Death drew near, yet, I had no fear
as the days got shorter
and i got older
i knew that my time has arrived
yet- i had no fear.
every night i look around and see the stars,
every night i look around and see the moon.
evert night i look by me
to see You.

    Hallow the body as a temple to comeliness and sanctify the heart as a sacrifice to love; love recompenses the adorers. (Report) Reply

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.
