Treasure Island

GJG Elton

(Philadelphia, PA)

My Mistake

You stared into that lot
To hide all your tears
Hidden in the dark
Were your fears
When you needed me most
I disappeared
Yet now I ask forgiveness

My heart, truly sincere
Though it seems late
I'm right here
Holding it in my hand
Once again to you
My heart, I offer
Please understand

It took but a while
To find the truth inside
But my love for you
Never faded; never died
Now living off memories
Of your smile
No longer afraid

Decades, I've been ready
Can you hear me
The world is sleeping
I'm awake
Calling you steadily
Counting down till the date
Our history, again, will be made

I'm dying to keep
Showing you
I'm no longer weak
Ready to make up
for what was once
My Mistake

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
