Every Day Should Have a Poem of Its Own
Shalom Freedman


Every day should have a poem of its own,
For every day its own story of dreams and perceptions.

But there are so many days
And so few true poems.

Poems that should have been written
Are not.

Our days and nights go by
Never to be remembered.
