I Wait for You


The moon shines bright
in the sky tonight
casting long shadows
on the pale limestone

The warm wind blows
on the tumbleweeds go
as I wait for you
to return, my love

The clouds roll in
and the moon grows dim
hiding the stars up high
from my weary drawn eyes

As the warm winds blow
on the tumbleweeds go
as I wait for you
to return, my love

Lightning fills the sky
thunder rolls on by
and the rain falls down
not a soul to be found

Still the warm winds blow
on the tumbleweeds go
as I wait for you
to return, my love

The moon so bright
in the sky tonight
lost in the Heavens above
as I wait for you, my love....

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
