The Unlit Road


Let explorers go where they will,
l have discovered my paradise in thee,
New worlds do not me, with interest fill
For you have set my roaming spirit free,

Of distant lands I dream no longer,
And I cannot think of elsewhere being,
As my passion grows, the bonds get stronger,
your presence blesses me with seeing.

You light up the road, I now must follow,
Before you were there, the road was dim,
But anywhere, without you, would be Hollow
And parting, be it but an hour, is merely an interim.

    When you finally meet the love of your life, the road ahead becomes brighter when you're with them.
    Being separated even for a short time becomes intolerable and difficult. Your expression of feelings
    and emotions is excellent and right on the mark each time. Love reading your poems. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
