    I've been looking for the title, author and full text of a particular poem (or possibly song) for ages. The complete absence of information on it really puzzles me. Using Google, I followed a false trail to another poetry site but I'm pretty sure that the poem I saw there was 'inspired' by the (unknown) original, for which I'm looking. You see, the trouble is that 'my' poem was around in the 1990s, whereas the one on the web was alleged to have been written in 2003.

    This is the unattributed quotation I saw.

    'I know that people come to change... we'll grow apart. We'll pass with age... And so our friendship is a phase. But how I've loved these days.'

    It's not 'I've loved These Days' by Billy Joel either!

    This is a huge mystery and if anyone could solve it, I'd be really grateful. I have a hunch that the source is American because the 'author' of the 2003 poem lived in Missouri.

    Please help I am trying to find a poem that was read and a very dear friends funeral and I can only remember the gist of the poem not any lines.... It is a about a ship that is gettin further and further away and to us it is getting smaller and smaller but to the people waiting for it..it is getting closer and closer..... I think it may be from the 17th century. I know this is very vague but if anyone could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it... thankyou

    I'm not looking for a poem I had read. But I need your help really REALLY bad. You see, for the 'dramatic arts' unit, we have to find a poem on the theme 'The Skin I'm in'. I have looked and looked, I have been unable to find a poem that contended me. Most was too short (it has to be 1-5 minutes long for recital) or I just couldn't find it.

    Please if anyone found or had read a poem based on the theme 'The Skin I'm in' that was very deep and powerful or you really liked, tell me with its title and the author. I would appreciate it ever so deeply.

    I remember reading a poem in my therapist's office, of course I can't remember the title or poet, just that it was very simplistic and up lifting using only short phrases or discriptive words. It was to improve self worth I believe. I would be greatful for any info. Thank you.

    I hope someone can help me. I read a poem last year and I loved it. I don't know the author or the name of it, but I remember some of the phrases (kind of) and the jist of what it is about. It is a poem in which the author is listening to a new pop song, kind of top 40 song, and he is writing about the singer as well, he says something about 'the apotheosis of all that makes this country great' her groovey beat is infections now' 'her cocoa butter skin' 'can you hear me yippin out the window? '

    Again, this is only my best memory of the poem, not accurate. I have tried searching online like crazy to no avail. All I know is that it is a modern / contemporary poem and that when I did read it, I originally found it online, I just can't remember where. If any one can help, it would be great!

    Looking for a 'hospice' poem. Title might be... Gone From My Sight. Speaks of a ship sailing over the horizon, out of your sight but others see it coming toward them. Ends with... and that is dying.
