Treasure Island

John Eziekel Cagape


My Long Lost Grandpa


Holding in his hand
a baby's soft hand
Holding it tight
As tight as it might

Why do people are having sad emotion
to show their sympathy too much
or go beyond with the compassion
of other in the same quest

Shedding the tears for a love one
who died sacrificing in illness
on everything which even others
could not see or imagine

He tried everything possible,
everything impossible
by making it possible,
and died with a smile.

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;
