Treasure Island

Jeff Rushton


I see
The need for understanding
The fear of over demanding
Questions commanding
Why the unworthy standing?
Will love remain standing?
Will he respect?
Will he believe?
Will he have faith in me to succeed?
Will he raise hand in fist, or out to help stand?
Will he resist my need to assist?
Will he put forth an effort in my growth?
Will he have money to provide and thrive?
Will he be honest in every day life?
Will he love, cherish and hold me, in hot and cold?
Will he treat loved ones as one of his own?
Will he revert to his father’s ways?
Will he be faithful no matter what we go through?
Will he understand the past I have been through?
Will he see and believe in my dreams and esteems?
Will he enjoy the hobbies I love?
Will he respect the people and things I hold close to my heart?
Will he adore, look forward to and explore the love I hold tight?
Will he know when to take a stand and where to turn over the other hand?
Will he honor his promises, vows and covenants?
Will he be an example, ensample and forefather of lessons grand and infinitesimal?
Will he know when to speak and to hold?
Will he see when I need a minute or three?
Will he be the comfort, blanket, and warmth I occasionally seek?
Will he stand up and stay steadfast in his beliefs?
Will he give when I need?
Will he take what I give?
Will he, will he, will he...
Be everything I need and want him to be?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
