Treasure Island

Richard Lackman

(Philadelphia)

everlasting love


I wonder if I'll ever find an everlasting love
Or continue as I have just drifting at the mercy of
An aimless current of emotions in a sea of doubt
Drowning in uncertainty as love I go without

I know there must be someone looking for my love as well
A beautiful Maria, Beatrice or Annabelle
As lovely as a poem set in timeless fluid rhyme
As soothing as a church bell ringing out its pleasing chime

How long must I wait for love to bring me to its shores
Where I can bask under its sunlight with a woman I adore
And lie in bed each night beside this creature soft and warm
A heavenly experience of sight and mind and form

So as I lay alone with only hope to nurse my heart
I pray to be united with my loving counterpart
And then to float forever on a cloud sent from above
As we live on together in an everlasting love

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
