Treasure Island

John Turnipseed


After thoughts


Long ago and far away
I knew you in a familiar way
Now we're living poles apart
Regarding matters of the heart
Lots of work, little play
Career paths in the way
Too little fun, very much sorrow
Feelings on hold until tomorrow
Angry words harshly spoken
Sacred vows bent and broken
Another day, another dollar
Empty vessels dark and hollow
Were we equal to the task
Was it worth it one might ask
Before our lives began to fray
Long ago and far away
