Death don't touch my door

Completely in Love and married at fifteen
Bruised beaten battered and abandoned,
with four children at nineteen, I WANT TO LIVE
I'll keep on tryin, love is out there somewhere

Twentyone, fell in love, married had a son
Five children now for this single mom of thirtytwo
I WANT TO LOVE, I'll keep on tryin, life is out there somewhere

thirtyfive, third husbands a dream, all I ever wanted,
Fourtyfour eight grandchildren call me nanny,
To bad papaw doesn't know Nanny's heart is breakin
In this house I don't exist, but never will I say
I give up.... I want to die...For it would be a LIE.

My heart is full of wonder and love
that someday someone will want
I'll swear this with my dying breath
I want to live, love, and live.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
