Treasure Island

Jacquie StewartHeimann


Expectations


Lonely, empty, aching arms
Waiting to be filled
The certainty of destiny
That our fate is sealed

A heart that echoes hollowness
Knowledge that time drags on
It tests your faith, your hope and love
It drags the shadows down

A simple spark comes bursting through
A beacon in the night
To banish fears and endless tears
And bathes your doubt in light

A gentle, caring, somber soul
Drifts into your life
Someone to fight the emptiness
And give you love that's rife

It overflows the barren heart
Lives are interwove
Realize the simple fact
Behold! A treasure trove

You both go on in happiness
Destiny be damned
Life is what you make of it
Grab it with both hands!

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
