Treasure Island

Danny Speicher

(February 26,1982 / Lawrence, KS)

Still, Small Voice

While lying alone at night
I dream of days gone by
Of gentle hands guiding me
And my heart begins to cry
The silence of my darkened room
Brings fears of coming days
It prods at all my weaknesses
And on my heart it preys
Where has my childhood gone to
Where are all those who cared
Why am I left all alone in here
So depressed and so scared
But, in my heart I hear a whisper
A still, small voice from inside
A lingering hope of a bright future
Brings my heart close to its side
It's words bring me my comfort
And its words heal my heart
Its words patch my soul
When it's all torn apart
They take me above
All my suffering and pain
And give me perspective
They give me vision once again
Take time to listen closely
And you will hear the voice say
'I love you dearly and don't ever forget...'
'..To trust the Lord, Your God, and enjoy each new day.'

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
