Best Poem of SIDNEY W. JOHNSTON

A Far Journey

I met a man who journeyed far,
And he talked of the things he had done,
Of the places that he has been,
And how he had so much fun.

The buildings so tall, Oh the mighty walls,
The momuments to honor someone,
Such sights to see...
Such wonders under the sun!

But the things he remembered the most,
Are the people along the way,
The smiles, the warmth, the friendships,
To brighten your day.

Lands near and far, whose people are
So different in so many ways,
Than the life we have known,
And the ways we have all been ...

If I Knew

If I knew it would the last time
that I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

[Hata Bildir]
