Someone Who Has Placed A Bet


I hope to have greater moments,
Than the ones that have come...
In my past that were done.

I hope I am mentally and physically able,
To seek adventure and not fear the unknown.
With an exploring of life and share what is shown.

I hope the Sun rises and on the horizon stays,
At least to allow me to acknowledge...
So many blessings came my way.

I hope one day to find companionship,
With someone who has awakened...
To appreciate honesty and life lived to be basic.

I hope the Sun rises and on the horizon stays,
At least to allow me to acknowledge...
So many blessings came my way.

I hope I am mentally and physically able,
To seek adventure and not fear the unknown.
With an exploring of life and share what is shown,
And I am mated with someone honest and basic.
Someone who has placed a bet to win and won,
Exactly what they see in me.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
