Why is Life.....


Hard work is all I ever knew
Searched my whole life for someone like you
Someone to bring me joy and happiness
To give me love and a sweet caress
I accumulated all that I could
Built a dream house of beautiful wood
Tried harder every single day
Worried myself till my hair turned grey
All these things I did just for you
To make your life happier too
I guess I didn't do something you expected
'Cause to me, it seemed I've been rejected
Lying now, old and dying on my deathbed
You hold my hand, kiss me on my forehead
Looking deep into your eyes
What you told me was such a surprise
You old fool, what have you done
Together we made our daughter and son,
All these years and all that for me you do
Did you ever realize, all I ever wanted was you?
The house, the cars, the money we saved,
I'd give it all back for only one more day

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
