Have a misty look into your today
And what you call your tomorrow
It really seems all so unclear to see
Everything gone far away to drain;
Alone you’re, like you are to leave
Far away from what living means.

You live in a world that’s not with you
Crawling through it like no one cares
Not even those that brought you in it,
Give you time to prove your worth,
They let you go to waste then die away
Throw you to the vultures of this earth.
That eat your flesh as you look on?
You can’t tell what awaits day next,
Sudden death, or the usual painful days;

Till you realise what’s missing in you,
As peace never knocks at your door,
Except the touch of he that left you not
One that’s with you from the start till,
All you do is let him into your lost world
Be young again, young in his family.
Born in a family of many brothers, sisters
That welcomes you like you’re the first child,
Let them share the burden you carry inside,
They will not let go even at the end of times,
For to them that’s the beginning of living.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
