Waiting On The Corner


I'll meet you on the corner,
East of Love and Happiness;
I'm waiting there, so don't be late,
I'm wearing your favorite dress

I can't wait 'til you arrive,
I have, oh, so much to say;
Like how you mean the world to me,
And how you brighten my day

If sadness should take a hold,
I'll be with you through it all;
I'll never turn away from you,
I'll be there if you should call

I hear footsteps on the walk,
Oh, I recognize that pace;
And now you're here, right next to me,
I close my eyes to see your face

I see you smile and touch my hair,
Then you place your hand in mine;
We start to walk - I don't ask where,
Why question something so divine!

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill
Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be good night.

How can I call the lone night good,
