Treasure Island

Chey Lyon

(1/4/1995 / U.S.A.)


I prayed that you would stay with me
But now death is all I see
I reach out for you
But my hand goes right through

You gave me the stars, the sun, the sky
I never thought that you would die
You gave me comfort in my despair
You never failed to care

I never wished to see you go
I thought this life went by too slow
But now that you’ve left me behind
To look for you I am inclined

You loved me when no one else did
Though from your prying eyes I hid
I begged for you to stay with me
But now your face is all I see

Michael, Michael, where have you gone?
What did you do wrong?
Everyday you helped you prayed
But soon all remembrance will be slain

I spoke to you with my own soul
But now I am but nearly whole
That hole you filled now bleeds out
You’re all that I can think about

Michael, Michael where have you gone?
Your forgotten remains lie under the lawn
Who could forget a soul like you?
It’s from your faith that kindness grew

Michael, Michael you gave me life
When I wanted nothing more but the knife
Your cheered me up when I was down
When the darkness was my crown

Michael, Michael though your gone
You holy purpose won’t be done
I will carry on your will
Even when your aching body’s still

Michael, Michael I won’t forget
For soon our souls will both be met
For this life of mine goes by too quick
Soon I also will be sick.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
