Treasure Island

Jean Dament


Child of God

Once a timid child walked fearfully through life,
Not knowing how to cope with all her strife,
Afraid to open up & express her feelings,
Instead she wandered aimlessly carrying all her failings,
But a tiny light still glowed within her heart;
As she was born of a sweet nature from the start;
And in time her light shone brighter,
Especially after cancer turned her into a fighter,
Becoming then like a flower that grows to full bloom;
And with maturity...the fragrance fills the whole room,
Now this woman has found her way,
Filled with a joy that's surely here to stay;
As God walked in & touched her soul,
Now she reaches out to comfort others...making it her main goal.

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,
and the sheds were all cut out;
