Little King of Sorrows


Vow of Adoration


Adoration from afar,
for a dimly lit and distant star,
I wish upon thee peace of mind,
When reason to shine is hard to find.

A vow I made not long ago,
before your comfort left you so,
I still keep it locked deep inside,
This love for you has never died.

In many ways we can express,
Sometimes its taken to excess,
I need no touch to set me free,
My dearest friend I cannot not see.

For I still care when you are gone,
I pray for you at every dawn,
A secret pain I lock within,
Hidden by my clownish grin.

Forgotten not, it still holds true,
The very words I said to you.
Within the change of every season,
these moments happen for a reason.

Hate me if it gives you strength,
I will not dwell on it in length,
I know the pain you feel inside,
I felt it too when my own died.

Despair will eat the soul alive,
but keep on trying to survive,
for you inspire a world unseen,
we pray you wash your spirit clean.

I dare not speak direct to you,
it's the hardest thing I'll ever do,
but shall you find these words someday,
in my heart you'll always stay.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
