Treasure Island


Simple Guy

I'm a simple guy
If you held my hand
and saw me smile
You'd understand

I have some simple dreams
Though nothing has been planned
It's just a spark, an inspiration
but the flames I've fanned

Where a man is in life
is just a place in time
The place my heart dreams of
Is the only thing that's really mine

I dream of a place
tender and soft
I'll know it when I feel it
once found, will visit it oft

I think the place will be in someone's heart
one so sweet and kind
to make me a permanent part
In dreams, she does from the start

I hope to know her hands so warm and soft
and her voice so tender and dear
I hope to me she always be attracted
and always wish to be near

I think she'll be my best friend
one who could not be bought or sold
I hope she'll stay with me forever
more tender as we grow old

I hope she's finds happiness in our love
a love marked by care and bliss
where excitement never dies
and can be felt in every reassuring tender kiss

I hope she treats me softly
in good days or in bad
I hope we help each other to smile
and give comfort when one is sad

I hope we never raise voices too high
even if we're momentarily mad
for peace and harmony would make me happy
to coexist as best friends would make me glad

I know these ideals are simple but quite high
I think I'd love her even more if she was a little shy
But not too shy to come to me if ever there was a tear in her eye
To kiss it away, I would always dream to try

And if life was to suddenly end
As the moment of fate is unknown
I hope there is eternal comfort
In the seeds of love we've shared and sown

She's somewhere waiting for me
I know that this is true
I'm not ruling out the possibility
that she could be you

Poem of the Day

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;
