Adores


I am trying hard to understand,
I hope I have this right.
You want to be a distant friend,
and not a couple day and night.
You like the way your life is going,
probably golf and all things fun,
you may even have someone special,
which makes for a brighter sun.
I'm so happy that you're smiling,
every day, like you deserve,
I will admit the information
threw me for a curve.
But when I think how much I love you,
and truly always will,
that means I want the best for you,
as in a daffodil.
Smile plenty, and a lot of golf,
kiss those beautiful kids of yours.
You have a lot of life left,
remember you had one who adores.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
