Treasure Island

Dan Lundahl

Before I Leave

Before I leave, let me take your hand,
Let me ensure you're safe and on a stable stand,
I've honestly let a few tears drop,
Not only mine, but also yours, of which I tried to stop.

Before I leave, let me hold your chin,
Let me feel the rush, of your blushing skin,
I will miss your face, now and forever,
I will not forget your face, never.

Before I leave, please hold me tight,
Please ensure that I too, stay alright,
It hurts me a lot, to have to say goodbye,
With you continuously asking me, 'Why'?

Before I leave, let me kiss your lips,
Let me kiss, just one kiss on each, your finger tips,
Those lips of where your beautiful voice soared,
Never dry, never cracked, but so adored.

Before I leave, promise me residence in your heart,
Promise me, that you and I will never be apart,
There's only so much that I can from you, bear,
But I'd die, knowing that you're not there.

-Now that I've left-, please remember me,
To your room at night, I have the key,
I'll watch over you, from afar,
I alone, know who you are.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
