Stop This War That I Dread


We have always won the battles
Always reached up high
Through life and death I love you so
Just to see that smile

A bang went off that faithful day
You falling to the ground
I looked down at you
And you at me
But all you did was smile

As you slowly closed your eyes that day
I remembered what you said
And I will keep this promise to you my dear
No matter what I tread
No matter the challenge or mountain I face
With this I live on
and play the saving grace

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
