Lexie Night


Once Upon A Time


Once upon a time
I was a normal teen but then
Taken and beaten I turned mean
With time and pain I closed up
Now returned I am haunted by
Faces voices and people I have seen
Were they all as lucky as me?


Once upon a time
I was a normal teen but then
You took my heart and laid claim
With time and love we bloomed
Now I stand up and hold you
People and voices all say
Can I be as lucky?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
