Treasure Island

Yaritza Florencio

(New Rochelle)

my world would be worth giving if the last thing I saw was you


If today was the last day I could see…oh baby if you knew
That my sight would be worth giving if the last thing I saw was you

If today was the last day I could ever hear a sound
Baby I wouldn’t give a hell, as long as you would be around

Sweetheart if today was the last day I could feel your touch
I would savor the last moment you hugged me so I wouldn’t care as much

Babes if It happened that someone took my voice away
I wouldn’t care because you know already what I would say

Oh if someday I did something to which you would not agree
It would be okay, because baby I know you would forgive me

Baby, maybe I’m addicted
Just by this love afflicted

Because Maybe, baby this is untrue
But I figure if I never have you, ill never lose you

Or maybe baby I’m over thinking just a bit
Maybe ill never get this message to transmit

Maybe, baby, I just want to stay
Maybe this crush isn’t really going away

Maybe, baby….I might love you
baby if you only just knew
That my world would be worth giving if the last thing I saw was you……

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
