A Better Person To See


You came to me in a time
When my life was really bad
My smile had been lost
Life seemed so very sad

But you were the one
Who made the sun shine again
Looking back I now realize
You were more to me than just a friend

I could tell you anything
That was on my mind or in my heart
Sometimes both were so cluttered
Like a homeless persons shopping cart

But somehow and someway
You could make sense of it all
With your guiding heart
Together, we knocked down the wall

It was a wall I had built
To shut everyone out
You made me see that a loving heart
Can erase all pain and doubt

You made see for myself
That is was easy to be strong
That no matter what people thought
If you believe, you'll prove them wrong

So I just want to thank you
For believing so much in me
I know now as life moves on
I'll be a much better person to see

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
