My One True Love


I gave up my life for you
My friends,
My family,
My children dear.
Nothing else mattered...
For you were always there,
You were my only love!
I'd awake each morning,
And you were there,
To welcome my day.
You quenched my thirst
For love and understanding.
I found a place
Where I belonged,
Finally! !
A place where my hopes
And dreams came true,
I found it all in you-
My friend,
My hope,
My love,
My life,
The bottle.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
