Treasure Island

Khalil Breidi

(10 June 1984 / Dubai, UAE)

A Long Distance Mile


I had travelled for days and for hours
You greeted me, with beautiful flowers
a look of delight, a kiss and a smile
For you, I had travelled a long distance mile.
The promise of love and a silver band
In your clutches, engaged by that smile
For you, I had travelled a long distance mile.
The love we shared was our delight
'Welcome! your new life, to this new land'
then broken promises, in just one fight
Now all is lost but I remember that smile
For you, I had travelled a long distance mile.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
