Better Life


I see you in sleep
Pure beauty
No expressions
No disturbing features
Of voice or gestures
Sleep's serenity
Sleep's simplicity
All worldly feelings
Totally arrested
Only a dream
May take you somewhere...

My dear, I love you
Day to day struggles
Leading to minor irritations
May have created some
Unpleasant situations
And my reactions
Might have troubled you
At times unintentionally
Forgive me please
And I'll strive
To build a better life
Now and always.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.
