Treasure Island

Rachel Ndungu

If Only

At dawn while dew covers the surface with its freshness
I wait in hope for the dew to fall with him whom my heart fresh would be and if not
At sunrise while the warmth awakens the land
I wait in hope for one ray that would forever warm my heart and if not
At dusk while the sun sinks with its rays torture
I wait in hope for the emptiness at heart to sink and if not
At night while the moon lights up and stars glitter glowing the land
I wait in hope for one star that would in my heart land and glow my world and if not
At midnight while the breeze whispers calmness like a lullaby for sleep
I wait in hope that in my sleep a dream would draw him to me and the breeze would sweep him to my reality and when it be so
He be dawn, his words will freshen me
Sunrise surely be he, his smile will warm my heart
Sunset he will be, his tenderness will sink my pain
He be light at night, his passion will glow my world
At midnight his love will curdle me and sail with me in my dreams through to dawn.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
