Chalice of Subsistence


My love has no time limits,
You darling are the fabric of space and time
That keeps my heart together.
If a person expresses their love and no one is around to feel it,
does it still beat?

If your heart beats with love,
I want to be the one to witness the sound,
prove to the world that love is pure and unbound.
People search all their lives for loves grail,
I have found my chalice of subsistence.
I don't need any great wonders,
to appreciate the wonder of my existence.

You are the only one I will ever need,
You are the only reason why my heart flows.
And when I die, and my heart has silenced,
Will you cry? Will you follow me?
Like when the arctic sheet melts
and the winter rose is exposed?

Just tell me...
I'm the only one you will ever need.
Now close your eyes, take this journey with me.
Darling take my hand, follow my lead
Show me...
Forever is everlasting,
and the reason infinity bleeds.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
