I dash across the busy streets,
One wet and cloudy day.
To buy myself some savory sweets,
I trip a clumsy way,
Plonk down on my fanny seats.

I look around from where I lay,
A man dashes across the busy streets.
He comes near me, eyes striking blue,
He speaks and says, 'Miss, can I help you? '

Stands over me, reach out his hands,
He pulls me up, from where he stands
A tall, dark stranger, man oh man!
Handsome devil, I am a fan!

He smiles, one thousand watt,
At least that's what I thought!
Is he my knight in shining armor?
Who knows, He could be a farmer!

What if it's destiny call?
Shall I pick up, take the call?
Shall I open or close the wall?
Oh my, blue eyes is really tall.....
Perhaps Love at first sight?
Perhaps I can be right.

To love someone is gamble,
To love someone can take a tumble,
If we find love to be a struggle,
That's not love, it spells trouble.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
