Treasure Island

Daniel Wittfoth

(January 8th,1966)

Learn To Love Again

She left him standing there
the way Cinderella did
at the stroke of midnight

a glass slipper left laying there
like moments now
a sweet kiss still lingering

Ran away as if she no longer cared
and in the back of his mind
their song began to fade

Felt the sting of tears
tried to laugh it off
inside it cut like a knife

He would dropp down to his knees
curse the world if it would change anything
just to somehow ease the pain

Better days
better ways
to go on

She never told him why
between the lies and late nights
he couldn't see, would he truly have believed

One door opens
one door closes
that's the way it goes

Knowing know as he looks back
she is better off a memory
than what she had become anyway

Better days
better ways
to go on

Go on
and learn to love again
learn to love again.....

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
