Treasure Island

Colin Coplin

(Australia)

Christopher Coplin (24/10/1962 - 02/11/1985)


What's this emptiness you've put inside
This lonely rush of time
Why did you have to leave
without a word goodbye

You spilt the wine, you broke the cup
A song or two remain
You could have had the world you know
Instead you left it pain

The teardrops fall, at last you're free
I hope your questions answered
Another time, another place
We shall be reunited

You left me, no you didn't leave
A memory remains
The only one I ever loved
I know you think that strange

The sound of life, it wispers now
A new born baby cries
Maybe it cries for you
A birth so you may die...

... sleep well Christopher.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
