Help Me Go On...I'm Tired Of This War

What will it take,
To help me go on,
I can't understand,
Don't have any plan.

Send me your love,
So I can be free,
The here and the now,
Is a trial for me.
Help me go on,
I wish you could see...

I will do what it takes,
I feel so alone,
How my heart breaks.
Wishing for home,
Help me go on.

The spirit in my life,
Shattered and strained,
All of my troubles,
All of my pain,
My dark thoughts,
Rage in a storm,
With thunder and rain,
Help me go on.

My memories fade,
Drifting far away,
A heavy weight on my chest,
Never much rest.

Its been difficult,
This war, this tour,
Send me your love,
Help me go on.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
