Treasure Island

Jan Hauck

(June 1,1978)

Hope, Faith and Future


Never had it before but what do I have now?
Solid water running through my fingers,
And a faceless mortician examines my death,
While there is still a breath and a spark in me,
Behind the dark in me, but I see that it lingers.

O trust me, I want to - or dare I still?
My heart full of love but my head whispers doubt,
I fight and believe, have faith and believe,
Much less to reprieve, just hold on and move on,
Forward, can this be, in silence I shout.

But promise, I dive, take it head on, headlong
Into the truth, a leap I can do - with you to be
One forever, ever after and never we will
Let the dark tear us apart, fight for our life,
That doubt is dispelled, spelled 'you and me'.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
