Would I recognize you?


Dad
Would I recognize your face if I saw you today?
Would I recognize your back if I saw you walk away?
Would I recognize mom's voice if I heard her broken lullaby?
Would I recognize her sorrow if I heard her cry?
Would I recognize her very existence if I saw her today?
Would I recognize her unheard goodbye?
Would I recognize either one of you if you stood before me at the very moment?

Would you recognize me if you saw me today?
Would you recognize my tears if you saw me cry?
Would you recognize me and this broken lullaby carried on my shoulders?

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
