THE ONE AND ONLY


The One and Only You
by akingbehin daniel murphy

I want you to remember
Those good old days
Those days of happiness
When everything went your way
I want you to cherish these
memories
I don't want you to let them go
And I hope they make you happy
As they did so long ago
I wish I could comfort you
Shield you from life's pain
I wish I could just give you
everything
You definitely deserve something
to gain
You've always told me not to give
up
Well here is a lesson for you
If you ever need me, call
That is all you have to do
You've been through so much
these days
I'm sure God has something
planned out
But in order to see it
You cannot be blinded by doubt
So help me help you
Tell me everything you're going
through
Let go of all these troubles
Because the more you hold on
the more it doubles
Please, I can see your smile
fading
I can hear your voice crack
You may not be near
But you know I got your back
In the past I wasn't always there
Give me a chance this time
I swear on my life I'll be right
beside you
To save the emptiness in your
mind
With your heart so fragile
With your soul so true
This is a tribute
To the one and only you
So smile your gorgeous smile
Walk with your chin held high
Get up off the ground
Don't let your dreams die

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
