Treasure Island

Jake Gassiot

(1/31/89 / Texas)


Have you ever wondered if you had found the right person
I have
I wondered from the day I met you
That day you walked into my class
I thought I had seen you before
I had a year before
You looked like someone I could talk to
You looked nice
I wondered if I could say anything
I did
I was right
You are nice and someone I can talk to
But not only that
I found that you were the one
The one I couldn’t live without
The one I yearned to see every day
The one I thought of every night
The one who’s smile lifted me higher than the heavens
The one I could never spend to much time with
The one and only one I could dance with so freely
The one who’s kiss set me free
The one who’s eyes could make me lose all knowledge
The one I stayed up all night thinking about
The one I had to say bye to
The hardest thing I have ever done
The one I had to walk away from
The one I can’t see anymore
The one that I can’t get my mind off of
The one that keeps me single
The one I will always wait for
The one I could never leave behind
The one I would give the world to
The one I couldn’t kiss again
The one I tried to stay away from in fear of losing you
The one I have to eat breakfast with everyday
The one I couldn’t stop watching
The one I would take a bullet for
The one that made me cry
The only one for me

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,
