Treasure Island

Buddy Bee Anthony


I wish


I wish I could put out your fires
with my gentle rain.
I wish your streaks of lightening
wouldn't start those fires again.
I wish I could be young and strong enough
to come and rescue you from pain.
I wish I'd done everything for you
that I didn't do.
this wish I wish
Amen.

I wish that I could dance all day
and fritter precious time away.
I'd forget to mow the grass,
be master of my domain.
If only I could put your fires out
with my gentle rain.
I wish I'd done
everything for you that I didn't do
I wish this wish.
Amen.

I wish each horse I'd bet would stand to finish
win, place or show.
Anyone who's anyone I would surely know.
If I owned the world for just an hour,
I'd spin it just for you.
Only blue skies in your brown eyes,
I dream this dream comes true.


A princess and her troubadour.
A duchess with her steed.
If I could own the world just once,
I'd spin it toward your every need.
A dugout made of bone and fairy dust
where fondest dreams come true,
I wish it all for no one else-
I wish it all for you.

To glimpse the moonlight in your eyes
Sip pink champagne at sunrise-
this is my most solemn prayer.
I'm searching for you everywhere.
I wish to be young again and
make a life with you.
Lift this burden
from my stone cold heart and
make these wishes true.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
