Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

If It's Within My Reach


If it's within my reach
I will wipe tears in every heart
A light in their eyes

Shelter to the homeless
A roof in rainy night
Affection to the afflicted
Smile to the broken spirit

Son to childless families
Laughter in their lungs
Comforter of the widows
Nightingale to soften their sleep

A shoulder to the weak
Like lion in zion
Hope to the despair
A light in their tunnel

Dead to erase
Pain to ease
Dark cloud to sunny sky
And certainly chaos to peace

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
