Treasure Island

Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

Maybe Forever


The moon's like a lantern
In the midnight sky;
Its light is reflecting
In your sad grey eyes,
While a whippoorwill calls
And its mate replies.

Our hearts beat together
In perfect rhyme,
Like many lovers' hearts
Since the dawn of time;
But tonight is our night,
And our love is sublime.

How long will I love you?
I can't say for sure;
I want to say forever,
But nothing endures;
Don't question me now,
Tonight I am yours!

    It's a sweet love song. It's a sweet melody. A gentle, soothing breeze. A sea of soft moonshine.
    'Don't question me now,
    Tonight I am yours! '
    Thanks for saying this so beautifully.
    May your love flow like this for ever!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
