Treasure Island

Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

Just You and Me

It's two in the morning, everyone's gone,
Usually they all stay until dawn;
The smoke has cleared - I can finally see,
This is how I like it, just you and me

I prefer we chat when no one's around,
We say so much without making a sound;
I guess this is how it will always be,
Alone together - just you and me

I was thinking of you earlier tonight,
I knew I'd see you if I timed it just right;
I have to plan everything carefully,
Come sit over here - it's just you and me

Every evening I wait for the sun to go down,
Ah, the midnight chime - what a welcome sound;
Then I'm overtaken by a blessed fatigue,
I close my eyes, and it's just you and me

Let's do something crazy tomorrow - by the shore,
Maybe a picnic - we've never done that before;
I'll lay a blanket on the starlit sea,
And we'll drift away - just you and me

Tomorrow, the next day, it's always the same,
Counting the hours, I prepare for the game;
I've gotten pretty good at this fantasy -
There never was you - it's always been just me

    I've gotten pretty good at this fantasy -

    A beautiful romance ends up in a great tragedy. (Report) Reply

    beautiful once again
    the last 2 lines are a little heartbreak not just for you but for the readers who are enkoying the romance. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
