Treasure Island

Eric Cockrell

That's Enough For Me!

from a tiny acorn,
the oak tree grows.
what a man cant find,
a child will know.
only the heart
knows the secret
of where the wind blows...
and that's enough for me.

from drops of water,
the clouds are formed.
that go together,
to make the storm.
from the thunder
and the lightning,
the rainbow is born....
and that's enough for me.

the feeling that i have for you
is the simple song i sing.
your mind may not understand,
but your heart knows what i mean.

    i wrote this originally as lyrics for a song... my good friend Tim Bridges wrote the music... he has passed on to the other side now. came to my memory again at the passing of another friend, Joey Ottone, this week.... for all those we've loved and lived life with, for those who have journeyed with us!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
