Counting on my luck


Counting on my luck
~
I’m sitting here looking at your picture
Remembering a memory we shared together
I find myself smiling like never before
Trying to work out how we got together
You’re a blessing a change in my luck
And I’m wondering almost afraid
If this feeling will ever change
So I wont rest on my laurels
I wont sit here just counting my luck
I’ll try and do those little things
Which seem to mean so much to you
I’ll see you smile and here you laugh
Try and put a skip into your step
Tell you all the words you deserve to hear
And know more important how I mean them
You came to me when I most needed you
Now I’ll be anywhere and do anything
Just to prove to you how honest my heart is
How when I say I think your beautiful
I also mean a special kind of amazing
I’m sitting here thinking of you
Trying not to count my luck

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
