Treasure Island

The Forgotten One

You ask who I am
Well, who do you see?
An old friend faded away
Or a distant memory?

Do not concern yourself
Though I have yet to be set free
Is there no one honorable enough
That could help someone like me?

I stand at the end of the hall
Each and every single day
I always look directly at you
Could you be the one to help me find my way?

No one ever walks with me
I have always walked alone
I have no friends to share things with
No place that I belong

So I am just a simple leaf
Drifting through the wind
On a sad and lonely journey
That seemingly has no end

However long it takes
I will always wait for you
To come and lift me from the ground
And help me see things through

So until then I'll keep going
Until I find a place to stand
I've known this many times before
And I know exactly who I am

I am the forgotten one

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
