Ray Lucero


Great change came!
When lightning struck,
This lonely heart with love

My world filled with color!
Sweet songs like none before,
Descended from above

Her name was Arianna
A girl of beauty and of grace
“Love at first sight” it was
We shared our first embrace

Alas, love’s candle burned too fast
‘Twas fate that had the final say
“How could you expect young love to last? ”
Alas, destiny pushed me ‘oh so far away

Take heed should lightning strike your heart
As falling in love may have to high a price
‘Lest fickle fate you do outsmart
Then never, ever let go…is my advice

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.
