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 Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
