Dream of Love


I wish sometimes life was fair. Then perhaps love would follow soothe. I had dreamt about love One that never fails though it errs I had held that dream in a place i felt it safe But perhaps it is i who err For love i've learnt does not heed faithful men. Do not misjudge my righteousness I have known myself not perfect But had hoped to be loved just as i love. Perhaps not all men enjoy the luck To lay at night in the bossom of love To watch her sleep like a doll To know in your heart that she is yours. Some are condemned to waking to loneliness To drink strong wine and dine with themselves While i yet still hope I pray i had not found love and let it pass For then vain would be my wait. I hope some how along lives course I will find a love that never fails The kind that holds true to faithful men.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
