Treasure Island

live laugh love

there are three things to live for,
my happyness when my baby girl smiles,
my pain when she leaves for school and dont need me as much,
tears on her graduation day,
the little things that make me want to live,

three things to laugh about,
when she takes her first steps and falls,
when she stumbles over her first sentence,
and when she wont let go of my leg her first day of preschool,

three things to love,
the laughter of that little girl,
when she says i love you mommy,
and when she refuses to leave my bed because of nightmares and monsters that are in her room....

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
