Treasure Island

Philip Charles Brown


More Time


I wish that I had spent more time
I wish that I had opened my mind
I wish that I had more strength
To last the race and run its length
But you have not taken and exhausted me
You have provided all I feel and see
You have given so much and taken nothing in return
But the love you provided was easily earned
All we had to do was be
In your life and your love was free.
Best gifts have no tag or cost
They are received and never lost
What you provided in my heart
Was a beginning, a place to start
You made it easy after that
My heart is full my heart is fat
I grin from ear to ear each day
Cause I know love is here to stay

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
