Treasure Island

The Question Remains Unanswered


Strange things happen in our lives
through each passing year.
As we get older, we reflect
on the reasons why they came.

She came into my life
first in my childhood,
but for some reason
no friendship flared.

The years then rolled on
to forty and more
and into my life,
she once again appeared.

It is hard to define
what we were both
looking for
on the second time around.

However, what we found
was a deep, caring friendship
that reached higher than
any parameters we could have set.

We knew one day further on
we would have to part again
when heaven called
for one of us to go.

I reflect now for a reason
why destiny brought us together
not once but twice.
However, the question remains unanswered.

Poem of the Day

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
