The One


I've prayed for true love day and night
For one who'll make my lonely days shine
A ravishing girl whose eyes forever bright
Shall enlighten this not so vivid life of mine

Sought through purity, amidst this world
Her reflection glistened like the moon
Such opportunity to miss, I can not afford
Must I wait, else will it be to soon?

I have found perfection in its earthly form
It is lucid as of now; I am lifeless no more
Dear God, It is you who I must inform
What more could I ask for?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
