You Are My Song


So many things, I have tried to teach you
And you have taught me to love and smile
So many times, I have tried to reach you
Yet it was easier for you to cross the mile
Now is your time to fly away into the world
Just like the butterflies amongst the daisies and grass
We used to watch, when you were a little girl
Laying on our backs watching the clouds go on past
Your laughter was like spring rain
Your curiosity and how you saw the world inside
Would render my adult eyes so plain
And add to my imagination opening my heart wide
Never lose your eternal hope, that’ll guide you
Through the stormy nights of finding you way
You must discover your direction deep inside you
And try best you can to make it to that day
You may slip and fall, but I know you will rise again
You may fail, but failure is only failure to learn
For each step in life is a lesson, of this I’m certain
No matter how old, we must never fail to yearn
To search the world, and to search our heart
Of everything of which we are a part
Play it well, and like singing your abc’s out strong
You will sing it, for our lives are but a song

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
