The power


The couple that had something unusual
A power they shared that kept them as one
Some called it love though it was stronger
Through the trying times they clipped to it
Even at death they looked not to be scared
All they said was see you later to each other
And there they slept with smiles of freedom
We never discovered the power they shared

He owned nothing but his small brown book
His family had all vanished in an accident
That was all that he had left, we all thought
But he had something else that we knew not
We thought him mad and threw stones at him
All he said was father save these sons of yours
Then he closed his eyes with his face held up high
Never did we discover the power he held inside

The children that always sung songs of praise
Singing of the great power that we had never seen
They all came from a childrens’ home near by
Carried thankful and joyful faces like life was fare
Like they had lost nothing and had all they wanted
Their bus crushed as they travelled to a Church
All we heard them say last was, they had gone home’
It was that same power they too had and that day
I too received it and it blesses my life each day

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
