Treasure Island

Mina Harker


15 Years On


It's simple enough to say 'I miss you' and mean it.

To those around who remind me of you
I can say 'you're like him' or 'he's like you'
What of that? You never wanted to leave
Perhaps you never did as I stretch out my hand
in the middle of the night
and whisper so no one can hear
Are you here? Are you here?
Because God knows I miss you
And I don't believe in God.

To the treasured memories that slip through my fingers
Give it another 15 years
Then another, and another,
And I'm afraid that you'll leave me a second time.
Just as slowly, just as unwillingly.
Or maybe I'll see you in Heaven?
Because God knows I miss you
And I don't believe in God.
He knows that, too.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
