Treasure Island

Destination of Life


Sometimes, my mind wanders off
In the middle of the night
Without telling anyone
It takes off to those moments
That were truly ours
Those fights over driving too fast
Those grudges over minuscule things
Worries over paying bills
Moments we spent together
Just the three of us

Millie jumping on our bed
She was hardly three years old
Running naked just before her bath
From one room to the other
Of that house, that beautiful house of ours
Those were the moments that belonged to us
They are still waiting
Exactly where we left them

Now, when the morning comes
My thoughts and I get really confused
At least for a minute or two
I actually wait for her
to climb up the stairs
As if we were still there
But it never happens
No! and I’m still stuck here, me and the walls
Trying to survive this damp darkness
Under the cover of a mountain of feelings
Taking my time and burning into ashes

Someday, I will be forever lost
Amongst these dark and deserted paths
I know!
I know that, My Dear
But still, sometimes
My mind wanders off
Into those blissful moments
When we were all together

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
