The Shadow Of Love


I see the shadow of love
When you are passing by
My heart is environed by romance
And I wander like a house fly

I try to give it all
But I don’t get it back
For all I see is a shadow
Meaning I’m out of luck

I enjoy having you in my reverie
But once I wake up it’s a different story
For I get back to solitary times
Where wind whispers to me the word ‘sorry’

Now it’s time for you to give me a chance
Just a moment for me to take a try
I’ll let my words echo in the heavens
And with tears of love I’ll cry

I won’t allow anyone to disturb me
And for what I want I’ll stand and it’s true
For Romeo love Juliet
In the same way I love you

Now here is my challenge
To get lid of the shadow view
By giving you nothing but love
So I can be in love with you.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
