Be True

Life may be sad,

Be and stay true.

Short May poem by Jeremy Mallett| Details | |

If Death Were to Come Today at My Door

If death were to come
today at my door,
is it a risk,
a dream or a chore?
Today it may pass
or today it may come.
But will I be content
if today it is done?

But in my heart i truly know,
That your the one i love and i cant let you go.
