Treasure Island

Danny Speicher

(February 26,1982 / Lawrence, KS)

I Knew Peace


I felt the icy, strangling grip of death
Closing in quickly around my heart
As I struggled to breathe that one last breath

I heard my friends crying out around me
'Stay with us, please don't leave us now'
As suddenly my spirit became free

And, I knew peace, like never known before
I did not feel all those pains anymore
I knew peace, which surpassed just a feeling
I couldn't wait to see what was in store
I knew peace

Golden bricks on the streets were blazing bright
And the pearly gates were shining
The day, it never seemed to fade to night

Although the scenery was amazing
My joy came from deeper within
As my worries faded, I started praising

Yes, I knew peace, like never known before
I did not feel all those pains anymore
I knew peace, which surpassed just a feeling
I couldn't wait to see what was in store
I knew peace

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
