Pleading Love


Brothers, don't read me, and I won't read you.
If I trust you will you try and trust me
I've nothing to tell you
Don't pry, don't cry

Sisters, don't leave me, and I won't leave you
I read for you, but you didn't read me
I wish I could ask you
Just why? Oh why?

Friends learn how to walk, before you try to run
I tried to crawl, and now I'm nearly done
And now I beg of you
Don't cry, don't cry

Brothers please stay, Don't go away
Sisters don't go, please stay home
Friends do visit me, I feel so alone
I won't cry, I don't cry.......

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
