Loves Forsaken Remedy


The ancient ones’ said to do it
They said built a wall and you will live through it
So I built my wall of spiky stakes
To protect my heart from any mistakes
The ancient ones’ said to dance
They said to ask God for a chance
So I say a prayer for protection that he will not stray
A prayer for protection that he will not take my heart away

Commitment is a really big step
If one is willing to accept
Don’t look for answers in the mirror
Cupid’s arrow won’t find you there
Listen for the Echo in the forest
And you will find a love that is honest
One willing to stand the test of time
For your heart and for mine

Without any protection we will fail
So dance with me and let God prevail
You are my rock and I love you for it
But don’t break my heart or you will pay for it
The flower you may become
Will wither and die in too much sun
So take my hand and dance with me
And forget about that mirror looking back at thee

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
