    hi i am looking for a poem that i read a long time ago. i found it online at least 10 years ago. i have no idea who wrote it. i use to have a copy saved to my computer but i seem to have lost it. i can not remember the name of it either. i just remember some of the lines in it. and the lines are not in any particular order... this is what i can remember. if anyone knows where i can find it or anything about it... please let me know. i have been searching for months and i am at a loss now. Thanks everyone! !

    Because im never good enough no matter what i do
    Its like everyone thinks that i deserve to be lonely
    Like its my fault for loving you
    But i never asked for this
    I could kill myself
    Just for wanting you

    I once had a book dating from about 1920 called a Golden Treasury of Children's verse or similar, and one powm I would really love to find
    I think it was called the Third Birthday.

    Three candles on the, bedecked with rosemary and bay, her hand in mine as we cut the cake, , , , ,
    But she and me, and candles three will never be three again.

    the words are not quite in order but it is a sad but lovely poem about how quickly children grow.
    any help gratefully recieved

    I'm looking for a poem for my mother-in-law. This is the part she remembers:

    All you have to do my friend
    this wonder to achieve
    is close your eyes and lift your heart
    and whisper, " I believe"

    At times i wonder, with shallow brain i ponder with callow mind i conclude, it is naboth's vineyard. Heaven bless the earth cos i did not knw my mouth wet d land is green on a dark rich earth i gazed gazed n gazed indeed, is a promise land. In humble adoration i bow before your throne, as i come before your presence so i lift my voice in praise atone gu...ide our leaders right, help our youth to know the truth. Fools with stunted growth spit you those with stunted height despise you said they " it shall not be well." aback! Listen, no matter where you go, no matter what you say, there is no place like home. NIGERIA!

    I'm looking for a poem told to me by my mother some 40 years ago, I don't know the name or poet, just some of the words.
    in the poor side of town you'll find a little one room shack,
    a boy lives there, but nothing much to see,
    threadbare cloths and empty shelves,
    so fill my stocking to the brim and I'll be Santa Clause to him.

    Please it would mean the world to me if someone could help me, as I want to teach it to my childern, and grandchildren...

    *warning this might suck*

    A dandelion, yellow like the sun,

    so bright in the color,

    It resembles the sun.

    when the seeds spread,

    they spread like wild fire,

    and when they fall,

    it looks like snow.

    I'm pushing it a bit here but I don't know what else to do.
    I heard a reading on the radio the other night, it was read by a well spoken English man, all I can remember was it seemed to me to describe old England. There was a mention of cockle picker women and other charaters of the time. I need to know what this poem was it's driving me mad. Any suggestion much appreciated.

    Hi. I'm looking for a poem I studied at school years ago but for the life of me I cannot remember who it was by or what it was called. The only thing I can remember about it was that it was about a bus journey in really bad weather, possibly winter. The poet was speaking about a journey to see his mother I think and discussed the harshness of those orange sodium lights. Very vague I know but if anyone could help that was be great.

    In the French art movie " Holy Motors" (English subtitled) , Kylie Minogue sings the haunting lyrics to the song " Who Were We (When We Were Who We Were) ." This song stands out both for the fact that it's the only English spoken in the entire movie and for its deeply moving (to me) lyrics that somehow remind me of some of the song-poems of the Beatles such as " Cry for No One" and " Yesterday." However the music and miscellaneous background noise in the movie obscures some the lyrics, and I am dying to read the whole song/poem in its entirety. I have scoured the 'Net via Google, but none of the song lyrics sites has it- probably because it was never included in one of Kylie's actual albums. Can anyone here help? My email is if you'd rather reply that way instead of posting here. TIA!
