Treasure Island

Faith Elizabeth Brigham

(May 14,1953 / Pittsburgh, PA)

All I Want

the sun, the sun
the sun will rise
just like always
i'll wake, i'll wake
i'll wake alone
without you there
and say a prayer

i'll wonder, i'll wonder
i'll wonder where
you are right now
i'll pray, i'll pray
you're happy now
that's what i want

are you, are you
are you happy now
i would be glad
if you just knew
that's all i want
that's all i want

    I did like the hope skip and a jump feel to this and It reminds me of a happy school yard rhyme
    Very simplistic in design and very beautiful

    Oh Faith, do you suffer from a stammer! I was feeling quite sorry for you in case this was so. I found it a little disjointed with this repeat process but have read some of your other work and it's a little different this one. What I read of some of the others is nice.

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,
