Treasure Island

Thorns and buds


Reality is love has been lost,
But friendship has been gained.
Reality is I am sad,
But will laugh again.
Reality is I am broken,
But beginning to heal.
Reality is I am old,
But still an amazing woman.
Reality is harsh with thorns,
But in spring comes a bud.
Reality is facing reality,
But having no fear.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

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