Yes... It DOES Matter


It matters
What my eyes see
If there is somebody
Willing to look at it
With me
Once in awhile

It matters
If I wake up in the morning
If there is somebody
Willing to call my name
Because of me
Once in awhile

It matters
If I have love and care in my heart
If there is somebody
Willing to accept it
And accept me too by that
Once in awhile

It matters
How I look and dress
If there is somebody
Willing to appreciate it
For me
Once in awhile

It matters
What I think and feel
If there is somebody
Willing to listen to what I've to tell
Make my words count
Once in awhile

It matters
What I do during my days
If there is somebody
Willing to be the one I am doing it for
No matter how small my gift
Once in awhile

It matters
That I suffer
If there is somebody
Willing to ease my pain
Regardless what it is
Once in awhile

It matters
I am just a human too
If there is somebody
Willing to need me too
To give me value
Once in awhile

It matters
Who I am
If there is somebody
Willing to love me
Just the way I am
Once in awhile

It matters
Who I am
If there is somebody
Willing to be loved
By me
Once in awhile

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
