Our Day in April (Part 1)


When you walked through the door and into the room
I thought you were not existed
The way you looked when you smiled
My heart pounded with such aspiration, that i could almost not breathe
Then you walked to me, like you heard me wanting you

You smiled at me and asked my name
With a short breath i said 'Shelby'
Then you told me your name 'Damien'

A few months went by and we learned about eachother
I learned your favorite color was dark blue, you come from Australia, Your first job was as an astronomers apprentice, and your father was killed in a fire
I told you my favorite color was teal, I lived on the island my whole life, my first job was as a prep-cook, and I never really knew my real dad

Three years pass-by and it's high school graduation
We have been through so much together, it's hard to believe we have to leave eachother
My father has died of Leukemia, my brother has lost a leg in the war in Iraq
Your mother got hypo-thermia one winter and lost both of her legs, your sister is in a coma from a car crash

We will never be the same as we were when we met, that one sunny day in April, when the flowers were blooming and the rainbows were fading slowly
That day, will stay in our hearts, for the hope that one day, we will meet again on a day like our day, again

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
