More Effective When Reminisced


Chasing away...
Disbelief.
And unfaced can't replace,
What was near.

Chasing away...
Disbelief.
Doesn't heal any wound,
One still feels.

Chasing away...
To believe that which goes,
Isn't there ready to visit...
More effective when reminisced.

Chasing away...
Disbelief.
And unfaced can't replace,
What was near.

Chasing away...
To believe that which goes,
Isn't there ready to visit...
More effective when reminisced.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
