Treasure Island

A Book Called Me


I am like a book,
you may like what is on the cover
on the inside might even be better
take the time;
if you'd like to read me.

Do not just lay me down
time like dust, may obscure my cover
if you don't take the time
then chances are;
things will ALWAYS be never.

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
