Hi I am looking for a poem I read about 12 years ago, someone gave it to me after my fiance was killed in an accident, And I have wanted it ever since. If any one could help me find it I would be so thank-ful! The poem goes something like this ' Once a day and sometimes more you knock upon my daydream door' This is how it begins and I cannot remember the rest. Anyway's any help in finding this would be great! ! ! Thank you! ! ! -Cindi

    Hi Cindi,

    You probably have the answer to your question by now, but I have kept this since 1966 when my husband and I were out of the country and I had a dear friend with whom I had worked for a few years. Anyway, I copied this and sent it to her. Looked it up again when a friend lost her husband. Then I decided I wanted to know who wrote this poem because my printed copy does not include the name of the author. Let me know if you still want this.

    The poem Earl is referring to seems to be part of the Lonely Woman by Helen Gilchrist.

    A similar poem is:

    Once a day and sometimes more
    You knock upon my daydream door.
    And I say warmly, 'Come right in'
    I'm glad you're here with me again.

    Your smile makes the sun shine oh so bright,
    And everything wrong, now seems right
    We laugh, we sing, we carry on
    From darkest night to brightest dawn.

    Then suddenly-the daydream ends
    And here I sit alone again.
    With thoughts and dreams that won't come true,
    Until the next time I daydream of you.

    Unfortunately, I can't remember the author of this version.

    Cindi......I remember most of this poem from high school (the mid 60's. However I can't remember most of the last line. If you can help fill it in, please do so:

    Once a day and sometimes more
    You knock upon my daydream door
    And I say warmly 'Come right in,
    It's good to talk with you again'
    And then we two _____have a chat,
    recalling this, discussing that,
    until some thing that I must do
    forces me away from you.
    And so my friend ______________brought,
    A guest to me each day in thought.

    I hope this is helpful for you. I've been trying to fill in the blanks for about 40 years! ! ! !

      Hi Earl, If you are still looking for this poem, I think I have it. I have had it since the mid-1960's when my husband and I were out of the country and I sent it to a long-time friend. If you s ... more
