Treasure Island

Danny The Dreamer Boyd

I Hang Around

I hang around because I don't,
Have yet the strength to leave;
I hang around and it's so hard,
To hang around and grieve.

I hang around because right here:
I laughed, and loved, and slept;
But all seem now to disappear:
So I hang with who've wept.

I hang around, yet keep in mind:
That I can't hang for long;
I hang in hope to someday find:
The guts to end this song.

I hang around and fake a smile:
To hide how hard it is,
To hang around to just beguile:
A harsh life of unease!

I hang around, I hang around,
I hang around all day,
And when the time does come to go:
I hang some more and pray.

I pray that when around again
I hang, that time's the last:
So I could finally begin,
To, oh, part with the past!

I hang around for one last time,
And bid before I go,
All those who were once close to me:
A mildly fair adieu.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
