Once A Year


Once a year
I close my eyes to pray

To loved ones gone
Who now has passed away

Their humor was boundless
Their love so rare

They knew each other
Inside and out

They we're my
Role models
For love

They married when they were young
And like all couples
They had their highs and lows

But at the end of the day
They were husband and wife
Who were lovers and best friends?

So this I give to thee
A daughter who loves you so

You're forever in my heart
That's how much I love you so

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.
