'Til I Could No Longer


I'd have told you, you were beautiful,
'til I could no longer speak,
I'd have gazed into those deep brown eyes,
'til I could no longer see.
I'd have stood by you through all the storms,
'til I could no longer stand,
I'd have held you up so high, so high
'til the strength had left my hands.
I'd have given you all that's in my heart,
'til it could no longer beat,
I'd have carried you through blazing fire,
'til my legs were frail and weak.
I'd have written poems of love to you,
'til I could no longer rhyme,
I'd have loved you all the days I have
'til my life ran out of time.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
