New Year's Sentiment


this love is not what it needs to be,
no flowers or candy or romance for me,
spending special days alone
waiting by the telephone

i'm told you love me oh so true,
but what in the world is love to you
being a man is no excuse
for letting my heart hang so loose

you say just wait the time will come,
i've waited and you have not thrown a crumb
all i wanted was some small token
a card or letter or soft word spoken

but then he came with words so new
with romance and kindness we never knew
and try though he might to turn my head
i still held on to what you said

now here it is this new years eve,
you and your friends about to leave
you think I'm at home with a tear in my eye
hell no, I'm with the other guy...

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
