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

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
