Treasure Island

Joey Jones


To My Wife


Who was I until you
a dreamer of dreams askew
in your touch I was found
where dreams undreamed abound.

You woke me to a day anew
wrapped in your arms I found love true
the whisper of your love sincere
my life's most treasured souvenir.

The treasures that I never sought
more cherished than I ever thought
the smiles on our children's faces
magnum opuses from loves embraces.

My dearest wife, who am I with you
a dreamer of dreams that all came true.

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
