Treasure Island

Andrew Stimatze

(October 6th,1957 / Kansas)

Breathe


Lifted spirits with one word
Wiping tears as never occurred
Expose the future free, unbounded
You are far away.

Image soft of light caresses
Waken brightly all my senses
Time no more our life regresses
Stay with me this day.

Linger, slowly fading vision
Return to our daily mission
For your voice now I do listen
There must be a way.

Before the music cold and still
Dies in us, our bitter pill
To save us from the sorrow ill
A song to never play.

I respire fast and deep
No more binding rules to keep
Cross the seas and mountains steep
I’d run if I may.

Close the distance in between
Sweep in arms love’s never seen
To kindle fires to flame again
Only one word say.

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
