Treasure Island

Gordon Jerome


A blank piece of paper
And a story to tell
Bout a mans falling spirit
And the reason it fell
You see this man trusted fate
To guide him along
And find his soul mate
To which he’d forever belong
But life can be cruel
No matter how strong your guards
It can play you a fool
And turn your heart into shards
It happened to me
I was blinded by love
And I fell like a fool
When fate gave me a shove
But I got back on my feet
And faced my fate once again
With a taste bittersweet
Loves search once more can begin.
“closing thought”
The harder the fall the swifter fates shove
The deeper the ache the greater the love
