One More Day – A Poem Dedicated to Life

a beautiful day

I need one more day to catch my breath,
Look at a familiar face,
Be unafraid of death,
And face my enemy with grace.

One last dance with life:
An unfaithful wife.
One more chance to look
For whatever she took.

Whatever is left is all mine:
A candle and a bottle of wine.
I always knew she would betray,
But all I wanted was one more day.

I always had a love for writing even when I was still in school. I used to collect good quotes and admire them. I enjoyed the beautiful play of words so I started writing poetry. Life is too short to understand, but it is long enough to stand with your fellow man.

    Nice poetry. It sucks when the pen starts writing of tragedy. I feel though when mine does it comes up with some gems. I fine the raw emotion of sadness and despair have an intricate take in my writing. Nice rhyming, good work
