Treasure Island

Airda Jones

(Sept.17,1988 / US)

Are You Lonsome Tonight?

How could I forget
That night we spent
Especially when you suddenly
Just up and left

I awoke with a chill
All alone in a dark room
Hardly believing that
You would leave me so soon

The only thing there was
To show you weren't a dream
Was the impression in the pillow
Lying right beside me

And the moon's cold
Blue rays shown bright
Assuring me that lonesome
Had found me that night

I tried so hard to
Close my eyes to imagine
What it would have been like
If you were there when I had awoken.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
