A Step Closer To Home


I rest against your chest
and your strong arms protect me
you believe the same as me
and you held support me,
you give me courage to go on,
you help me sing my songs
I have someone to sing about,
I have a love that has no doubts.
I believe there is hope
because in your eyes I know
that I will never be alone,
you will never let me go,
and I will never be afraid
because not eveybody's mean,
but this is just a dream
I'm still empty;
a message without a bottle,
a pen without ink,
a preacher banging on the pulpit
to an empty congregation.
Is everyone at the ball game,
dying for the pig skin?
Baby, this world's a hurricane
and I'm in the eye
help me step into the sea
and meet the rising tides.
This world is so cold without you,
but you probably don't exist,
so I'll have to fight without you
and die with this wish;
for someone to wear my jacket
and keep me warm and safe
someone to rely on
so I won't die this way
someone that I can count on
to help give me hope
so when I step into this world
I'm a step closer to home.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
