Goodbye From A Kid


when i look back maybe
i have heard your voices
you could have bend over
share word without knowing
while am trying to walk few
you could have pick me up
raise to reach guava leaves
my tiny hand grasping green
i put in my mouth without shame
to laughter of a crowd, i dream

you let me down to the ground
run to my mother not looking back
once i am at my mother's arm
i pointed at you without word
my lips drooling i hug loving chest
and i wave my hand goodbye
but i remember happy moments
so as people around you, your best
some will shed tears; say words
and some immortalize your deeds

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,
