Holding your hand feels wrong
But loving your heart feels right
I have no claims, no chains, my love
And I know that you are not mine
For surely as the sun rises
And the moon drifts slow into the night
The day will come, and with a blinding sting
You will leave me, blown away, my sweet
Like pollen on a breeze
You will drift far, far away from my eyes
And farther still from my lips
But never ever far from my soul
And never ever far from the memories that console me
Yes…you will leave me, but leave me never
And you will go, but remain forever
Sweet man, sweet, sweet man of my dreams
I will love you forever
And I will release you, never...
Bound and gagged, prisoner of my heart
My secret, my treasure trove of all things precious
And I will shine like gold
In my recollections of your smile
And sparkle like diamonds
When reliving the joys of your kiss
And my smile, will be your smile
And my sighs, your sighs
If only for a while…just a while
Cause holding your hand feels wrong
But loving your heart…is perfect

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
