A Brighter Day


Love is never far away
It's never in hiding
When we live without it
We feel like we're sliding

We think that love is gone
That it simply passed us by
When we sit to ponder
Then all we do is cry

We thought we found that person
That would love us so true
But then before you know it
It's like they've forgotten you

You've given so much time
Plus all the energy you can
You're not really sure
When the heart aches began

You only know for too long
Your needs have been ignored
You've tried everything you know
You've even prayed to the Lord

But nothing seems to work
Nothing gets their attention
You finally decide this is it
There no use to even mention

That you live unsatisfied
Many things are unfulfilled
It seems the more you say
The more you feel the chill

Long ago you realized
That this love was at it's end
Not only have you lost a lover
Along the way you've lost your friend

In your heart you believe
That true love does exist
You know when you find it
You will not resist

For far too long you've been alone
Too many lonely and cold nights
You know that somewhere out there
A heart beats for you that's right

It may take time to find them
How long who can really say
But you know deep in your heart
The world holds for you a brighter day

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
