Can You Feel For Me?


Can you feel for me? It was my daughter and her child
Torn away from my heart by some man whose passions went wild.
Does he care that I'll never see them anymore?
He just ignored their cries when they hit the floor.
You can't imagine the painful thoughts that leaped through my mind
When I realized that bloodstained kin was all I would find.
How could someone so very unstable
Have once been a soul seated at G-d's table?
G-d one thing I must ask:
Please punish the evildoer and take him to task..
G-d give me strength so I'll quit looking for the reason
That my Mary and my Troy are not alive to see another season.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
