Treasure Island

Genevieve Pilat

Second Beat


Hello to you, you second beat
That aches in my poor heart
Oh how it’s been so long ago
Before you and I did part.

At first I did not notice
Your beat so faint to feel
As if a ghost, mirage or dream
I thought you were not real.

Yet here you came so suddenly
You caught me way off guard
Like lightning striking in my chest
You’ve made my life so hard.

And now you’re here so bothering
All because of some guy
Yet would you mind and stay for good
I don’t want to say goodbye.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
