Longing For You


Spring is approaching
with endless skies of blue,
and more than ever
I long to be with you.
Soon the rose bushes
will set the garden ablaze,
and the daffodils will bear
gold.
Each beautiful day will end
only to be followed by
another,
but this yearning inside,
will never grow old.
I'll gaze up at the
silvery stars each night
and pretend you're here
with me,
that I can kiss you
and hold you tight.
You're a living dream,
a wish come true,
and though we're apart,
I vow that my heart
will ever be true.
I'll always cherish,
and need you.
And each dawn that I
awake,
the grass rich with
diamond-like dew,
I'll think of you,
and my heart will overflow
with love that belongs
only to you.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
