Worn Out


Thy strong arms are around me, love
My head is on thy breast;
Low words of comfort come from thee

    Very Touching poem....
    Can a death snatch away the eternal soul
    Longing to die in beloved's arm
    Resting head on thy breast
    Bidding goodbye to beloved's heart
    Before going on eternal sleep! ..........Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

    Very emotional. Casually I looked at poetess's time line. She had a very short life. Thirty three years! She had all the love in the world but no time or energy to give back or enjoy what was once so wonderful. May be some illness. But she sure left the legacy of this beautiful poem for us.

    Comfort at a tragic moment in life is rare to find! Surely the enjoyer of comfort depicted in the poem is a lucky person though he has nothing to give in return! Love is precious to lose in life more than anything else...! He has love that will bring him all he lost sooner or later in life...! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
