Treasure Island

Clara Odelia Ciutara


Here we sit
Hearing you
Explaining the lessons
With love and with dream,
Although you may not realize it
But I can
I know your desire to lead us
With your blessed hand
Into an unseen life bridge

The day may be dark
But you’ll not
Cause you yourself
Is an unshaped light
Holding our hands
Befriending us
Through this darkness
And here we wait

We may have done too much fault
Especially to the person
Befriending us till now
Without feeling dejected
Especially to you…
We might have disappointed you
We might have lied to you
And we might never think of you
But you…
You wait us with smile
Saying it’s all done
And asking us to face the future
Nobody would be
The very best guide I’d ever met
Like you

The road is almost finished
Soon, sun will come
But I’ll never forget
I’d ever seen a much more brighter light from you
The one guiding us with love
To reach his own dream
He’s my teacher

    I am sure this poem would please any teacher. I like the idea of an unshaped light, though I cannot imagine what this would look like. From out of the darkness may you continue to rise. (Report) Reply

Far south the lift,
