Treasure Island

Stephen Loomes

(21ST JUNE 1950 / SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA)

Hello Dear Reader


Hello dear reader,
You have come to see my words
I hope you are doing well
It sure does mean a lot to me
You are feeling well, and
That you are reading what I tell
I am looking at the sunshine
Out the window through the trees
Trucks are rumbling down the highway
But they don't bother me
If you've read some of my other poems
It is clear that I can see
Beyond my room, beyond my home
To life's complexity
This process of our living
Is a miracle beyond compare
And every moment is rushing
To a place beyond all care
The love that I've shared,
The times I have cared
Is in my warmest memories
The times I have hurt
And acted wrongly never sets me free
But as with us all perfection waits
No person is right, that never could be
And if we can forgive each other
And then one's self
Then happy we all should be.

Poem of the Day

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
