Heaven is where you silently lie

Hell is full of pain
Hell is for the psychologically insane
Hell is full of personal disdain

Life is now
Death is three score and ten
Heaven is a vow
I wish I knew now what I knew then

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
