Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Amrita


You are my hope and i am your lover,
But these tears are too heavy under my eyes;
Because i needed you to fulfil my dreams,
But the sea came and washed you away.

Time after time and love after love,
You lied to me when you said that you love me;
But when i fall in love again,
I will know what to do with my life.

Life is between tragedy and comedy,
But the cool impulse in me makes me think at times;
For i have seen the wind the blew the ship!

This was like a cargo on a little boat,
But openm your eyes and see with them;
For there will always be problems on this earth,
Because mankind has failed to respect the laws! !

Amrita my love,
You are my hope and i am your lover;
But the cool impulse in me makes me think at times,
For the wind came and took you away when i needed you most.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
