Treasure Island

Patrick William Kavanagh

(26/02/1957 / Dublin)

Limitless love


Who can put a limit on the way we choose to love
Who can dare to tell us who we choose to share our lives
We may share our hearts and dreams with many or with few,
Only when we listen to our hearts can we be wise,
Then our hearts will tell us what it is that we must do.

None of us can tell if life is going to be long or to be brief.
Love may last a thousand lives, or blossom in a single day.
That Life is meant for loving is my uttermost belief,
And if your love is wise or rash, is just for you to say.
For life Flies by so fast, and only love can conquer grief.

Grasp the nettle firmly and hold tight to all that you hold dear,
Drain the cup of life, don't let you precious minutes drip away.
Don't stop to count the cost of love, Don't live your life in fear,
This day may be your very last, don't wish it all away.
One moment spent in loves embrace, can heal the many lonely years.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
