Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab


>>>Gratitude 1


My eyes are more precious
Than mountains of gold

I realize this when I was
In the valley of paradise

Moving in snail’s pace
Thinking how little I am

Nothing I have got
In my life

Anger was growing
Inside

Suddenly came a sound
Echoing from the Himalayas

The mother of the highest
Mountain on earth

‘’take away gold
Equal to my Everest

And in turn give me
Me your eyes ‘’

I become wiser
And since then I never complain

Only whisper in heart
Gratitude, gratitude.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
