Treasure Island

Richard Netherland Cook



My heart holds many memories
Of all the times we had
The sweetness and the sadness
Of the good times and the bad.

In my heart I hold you dear.
Yours arms still hold me tight.
I see you in so many thoughts,
And in my dreams at night.

You will live within my heart
Until my dying day,
And all my thoughts of you
Will never fade away.

Even though a new day dawns
My heart still holds you dear,
And all the memories that I cling too,
Will keep you always near.

As the years drift slowly by,
You stay etched upon my soul,
For time cannot erase
All the memories that I hold.

Oh, my precious Mother
How I long for your embrace
To sit awhile and talk to you
To see your dear sweet face.

Memories now are all I have
Of the times that were so dear,
When life was full of happiness,
Because you still were here.

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,
