    Poem of the Day

    As we already have a topic about the photo of the day, I think I'd set one for poetry too since I know we've some poets here. So share your poem or few poems of the day, no matter if it's old or new, just that it's yours and describes something about the day or you. Also critique is welcome.

    Here are few of mines (older):

    The Final Goodbye

    I stand here on a bridge
    Cold wind blows right through me
    I hope it will numb my heart
    So I wonít feel the pain
    For the thing that Iím going to do.
    I look down from the bridge
    Water looks so gloomy and deep
    I bet itís freezing cold.

    I have a picture.
    A picture of you.
    It brings so many sweet memories
    Back to me
    But I know now itís time
    To let it all go.
    So I kiss the picture
    Very last time
    Gently as it could fade away
    When my lips touch it.

    ďIím sorry hunĒ
    I whisper in wind
    ďI would have loved to carry on
    But I know there will never be
    You and me.
    So I know now itís time to give it up
    I hope the life will treat you well
    And somebody will make you happyĒ.

    I lift my hand
    And throw the picture down from the bridge.
    I watch how wind pulls it in air
    Till it falls down
    To gloomy water
    And I stay watching
    How black waves
    Wash it finally away.

    I know some tears
    Go down my face
    But I donít even feel
    When them drop to same water
    Which just washed my heart away.
    ďIím so sorryĒ
    I try to say
    But wind takes my words away.
    ďIím so sorry
    But I have to carry on
    With my life
    Without youĒ.

    I turn around
    And wrap my mantle
    Tighter around me.
    While walking away
    I know
    I will carry the ghost of your picture
    In my heart forever
    But I couldnít just carry you
    Anymore.

    Life must go on.


    Carry on

    Maybe the sun doesnít shine every day
    Maybe you fall and find hard
    To get back on your feet again
    Maybe you fail
    And need to carry it with you
    For years
    Or the rest of your life.

    But remember,
    Without rain
    You canít feel the sun
    Without falling sometimes
    You canít know
    The joy of going ahead
    And standing on your own feet

    And
    You can carry something
    Very valuable
    With the mistake you did.

    Not technically a poem but one of my favourites:

    The following is the traditional horse's prayer. The name of the author has been lost over time, but the prayer is touching and I've always believed it should be shared. The prayer is written from the horses point of view.


    The Horses Prayer




    Feed me, give me water, and care for me, and when the day's

    Work is done, give me shelter, a clean bed and a wide stall.

    Talk to me. Your voice often substitutes for the reins for me.

    Be good to me and I will serve you cheerfully and love you.

    Don't jerk the reins and don't raise the whip.

    Don't beat or kick me when I don't understand you,

    But rather give me time to understand you.

    Don't consider it disobedience if I don't follow your commands.

    Perhaps there is a problem with my saddle and bridle or hooves.

    Check my teeth if I don't eat, maybe I have a toothache.

    You know how that hurts.

    Don't halter me too short and don't dock my

    Tail... it's my only weapon against flies and mosquitoes.

    And at the end, dear master, when I am no longer any use to you,

    Don't let me go hungry or freeze and don't sell me.

    Don't give me a master who slowly tortures me to death and lets me starve,

    But rather be merciful and take care of me,

    By letting me run and enjoy a warm pasture.

    Let me request this of you and please don't regard it as disrespectful

    If I ask it in the name of Him who was born in a stable like me.

    Amen

    Okay, here comes a new one:

    Wild horse

    You’re like a wild horse
    I watch out of a window
    And see it grazing in the field
    Among those trees so green.

    When I look in its wild eyes
    I see a reflection of you
    And its alert lonely moves
    Remind how far I’m from you.

    Like I’d like to ride it
    Fly across that field so green
    I’d like to touch you body
    Run my hands all over you.

    But like that wild horse
    I know I will never get you
    I once reached my arm toward it
    And it was gone just like you.
