If Not For You


Life has given us reminiscent skies:
Like wondrous golden evening sunsets
That kissed our daily tired burning eyes;
And the ocean below we’ll not forget
With its thundering, mysterious voice
Beckoning our return from whence we came.
We think of what will be and we rejoice
In knowing all the beauty still to claim.
And yet my love, while this for you I write
All I have witnessed in life’s great bounty
Would just be hidden shadows in the night
If not for you who shared these sights with me;
And all the stars that twinkle bright above
Give testament to your undying love

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.
