Treasure Island

I Love Her


It was broken and it made me cry
I was exposed from the only home I knew
Many hands held me but why
some wiping my face not to make me a clown
It was no make up but a new do over
Everything was new, in this strange place I had to hover
Unstable I was, scared my feet won't touch the ground
Strangely, everyone was happy for me around

Nature then put me in a comfort bed
Of my arrival everyone had heard
Scared of men in beard, cry at the sight of the goats rared
I laugh at fingers and funny sounds called words
Soothing, I heard voices, always calling out a word, called my name
I became used to the word so I turned always
Since I was still in a strange land most times I cried

She came in and the tears she scared away
Comforting me, she always did without dismay
She loved me enough to prove she always had
Even before I became aware of her
Long before my tears, in her heart she had me there
A natural cushion she was and is
Never bored, her company is the best
Chattered in the house, entertainment she became
Always wants my smile and worried of frowns
A walk, she would carry me through town
Always holding onto her back but she had my back with a cloth

For this I love her
No other would I love like her
What she has done for me I will always cherish
This feeling for her will never perish
I can't pay for keeping me alive
She is no ordinary woman, more than a wife
A mothers love is Prime
Even in the grave I still do love even in my rhymes
I still love her and always will
She is never forgotten
Really I Pray, till we meet again
Somewhere celestial where we will meet no pain.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
