    "Did the captain of the titanic cry?"

    Ive always admired individuals with the wit and skill to write poetically. Im deeply envious of such people as I simply dont have this ability. There are some song writers who are really the equivalent of ancient day poets. I admire a song writer who can incorporate emotion, proper prose, history and tongue and cheek in a song. Mandy Moore certainly did this with Someday well know from the movie A walk to Remember.

    90 miles outside Chicago
    Can't stop driving
    I don't know why
    So many questions
    I need an answer
    Two years later
    You're still on my mind

    Whatever happened to Amelia Earhart?
    Who holds the stars up in the sky?
    Is true love just once in a lifetime?
    Did the captain of the Titanic cry?

    Someday we'll know if love can move a mountain
    Someday we'll know why the sky is blue
    Someday we'll know why I wasn't meant for you

    Does anybody know the way to Atlantis
    Or what the wind says when she cries?
    I'm speeding by the place that I met you
    For the 97th time tonight

    Someday we'll know if love can move a mountain
    Someday we'll know why the sky is blue
    Someday we'll know why I wasn't meant for you
    Someday we'll know why Samson loved Delilah
    One day I'll go dancing on the moon
    Someday you'll know that I was the one for you

    I bought a ticket to the end of the rainbow
    I watched the stars crash in the sea
    If I could ask God just one question
    Why aren't you here with me tonight?

    Someday we'll know if love can move a mountain
    Someday we'll know why the sky is blue
    Someday we'll know why I wasn't meant for you
    Someday we'll know why Samson loved Delilah
    One day I'll go dancing on the moon
    Someday you'll know that I was the One for you Mandy Moore

    Maybe poetry and music was made in heaven. The two together can certainly change your mood and take you to imaginary places or make you long for that long lost lover you never had.
    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...

    Pain sure can produce some poignant prose!
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Every poet has some kind of back gourd… that force him to write from heart torching lines
