How Cruel Everything Is


As kids we used to sing and dance,
As a cousin you used to hold my hand,
You never took life for granted,
Walking with your head held high,
Not giving a care in the world about what others thought about you,
So fun and honest,
So loving and kind,
Outwhit and free,
That was your mind,
You were there when I needed a friend,
I am lost without you,
So I hold everything in,
We used to have fun,
And get along,
I miss you my long time friend,
My cousin through family,
And my loving helping hand

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
