Treasure Island

Lauren B Called

11-7-88


In a crowded room of strangers
with gloom on each face
I think of you and smile
and it rises above this place
at one time or another
we all end up here
with our own stories
of blood, sweat and tears
but today I bring with me
a warmth like never before
I carry it in my heart
as I stare though other people's eyes
and see yours

    And you saw the world through bright clear eyes. (Report) Reply

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
