A Wish


make me a wish
a wish to take me
with you as i sleep now,
wake me a day of another
day of the days of my life
and bless me through,
i have a lot of thinking
and this thinking
is hurting me; i keep thinking,
i have wronged and angered
its been long wondered
yet hard to be; i try,
you are the lamp of my night
the light of my sight
kind, my shield tonight,
to wake up after
and trod on thereafter
and make me a wish.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
