Treasure Island

Jane Meyer


*If I Were to Tell Him, This is How I’d do it


“There’s something I want to tell you,
and I’ve been waiting to do it in person.
So I think I should say it now,
‘ case things between us should ever worsen.

Well, you see, I…
*sigh* I just don’t know where to start.
I guess first you should know,
you have a special place in my heart.

And not just as a friend,
‘cause, to me, you’re so much more!
I really thought it would be obvious,
always seemed my hiding was pretty poor.

You filled my every spare thought,
and even some I couldn’t spare.
And I remember every thing you’ve said,
though it isn’t written anywhere.

Whenever the phone would ring,
my heart would quicken its pace.
I would hope that it was you,
but knew it was disappointment I would face.

I’ve waited for months to hear your voice,
and for three years to look at you.
And I think now I the courage,
to finally say, I love you.”

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
