Treasure Island

My word wizard


You got out of bed,
opened the curtains to let the sun come through
and turned back to me with a smile saying:

“Darling, please write a poem.”

With the rays of sunlight falling over me
the words came into my head
and I put them to paper
to write a poem for you
and I thought about all of the poems
that you have written just for me

and the world around us
became a beautiful place
and I am infatuated
as I know that you do love me

and I thought about your poems
and I see your heart in them
and I am caught up in the words
on the paper
that was written just for me

and I am enchanted by you, my word wizard

and right here I am trying
to describe the way that you make me feel

and you are my sun and my sunbeam
that breaks through the darkness of my life,
you are my reason for living
and my heart still stops
when I see your naked body
but you are much more
than just a physical attraction.

You are my soul-mate,
my inspiration
and like my garden
I was once a barren land

but with care and all of your love
you did plant lovely flowers in me
and I did transform
into a paradise just for you.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
