Treasure Island

The old man is going home


The old man is going home
I can see it in his eyes
The old man is going home
His saying his goodbyes
The hat and coat they play their role
The suitcase standing by the wall
For a heart and soul that’s seen it all
It’s time to goodbye.

The old man is going home
Let’s help him on his way
The old man is going home
The last scene of his play
He knows home’s just a breath ahead
A fireplace some love and bread but
For a heart and soul that’s seen it all
It’s time to say goodbye.

The old man is going home
With every step he takes
The old man is going home
Shaking off the aches
He bids farewell a kiss, a wave
His silhouette horizon’s cave
For heart and soul that’s seen it all
It was time to say goodbye.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
