I Couldn't Ask For More

Poem By Dr. Charles A Stone

If one day were added to my time on earth
I would want to spend it with you.
You wouldn't have to do anything special,
just being with you would be my reincarnation.

I would want to spend it with you
in a garden or on a dance floor
or simmering in the kitchen, and though

you wouldn't have to do anything special
during those added twenty-four hours,
I want you to know that

just being with you would be my reincarnation
- the beginning of a day
that lasts a lifetime

hide beneath the boughs
of willow trees in shade

and jumped into the same of her

The walls of the empire are thick
and strong, hardened by the dried
blood of generations of youth who
have sacrificed for its endurance,
