The Day She Will Remember


You left me in this place
as though i was a waste
you left me here alone
my life alone to face
why, was i not good enough
for you to call your own
for you to sit and wonder
if love could not of grown
i walk along this street
these thoughts run through my head
never to have a father
to dance when i am wed
never to have a mother
to fix up my new dress
to smooth out every wrinkle
these thoughts they do depress
so now here i must sit
my hands move up and down
i smooth out every wrinkle
and do not make a sound
and in my mind i know
that if i speak at all
my heart will hurt again
and again i'll fall
believe it or not i think
about you everyday
and wonder in my mind
would life turn out this way
today i walk this aisle
given away by one
that one will be myself
our relationship is done
but in my head i wonder
if you had only known
how much i really needed you
what love could you have shown
so yes, you are the parents
who gave their child away
when now she needs you most
her precious wedding day.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
