Treasure Island

Shelby Lanier

(October 23,1993 / Raliegh, North Carolina)

Every breath that I breathe


It has happened
Finally once again
My breath was caught
Which I could not contain

Every minute you’re on my mind
I can’t get rid of you
Or the words you say,
Or the things that you do

When we’re together
I don’t want to leave.
To say goodbye,
Is one thing I just can’t achieve?

You’re every movement
Makes me think of you more
And I count the seconds
That we are apart!

I long to be with you
To see your smile one more time
Then you tell me that you love me
Which by is just fine!

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
