For A Fond Memory


A rolling stone...I don't want to be
To settle down, it's all I want
All this pressure
memories of the girl next door
can't compare to how I feel about you
That one night proved to me now
through all my mistakes
and this vow, I have a little piece of heaven
staring back at me
waiting for me
Just want one time, one chance to hold you
but something's keeping me at bay
If I close my eyes one time
will you still be here to stay
I want it to be that way but
the sun's rising fast
and I'm almost out of time
I'll leave these petals here
for a fond memory and take the flower with me
And if a flower is all I have to you
then I'll wait three days
till I know it's true...
or till my memories betray me
and I fall into a wreck
Waiting for that chance for you to see me
with the same heart I place when I look at you

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
