Treasure Island

Patrick William Kavanagh

(26/02/1957 / Dublin)

To Tina With All My Love.


When First we met, all I had left, was ashes in my hand,
You touched me deeply, in a way, that I may never truly understand.
Heart to heart and mind to mind, as if our very souls were joined,
It seemed that long before we met, our fates already intertwined.

I felt my life was over, in the dark and dismal days before we met,
I was ready then, to leave this, sometimes, bitter world without regret.
You came into my life, and healed my broken heart with patience and with love,
Your friendship came to me, so unexpectedly, a blessing from above.

Although you weren't my first love, In my heart I know that you will be my last,
When I gaze into your deep blue eyes, I know our love will grow, I know our love will last.
Words can never let me tell you just how much you mean to me,
Let me share my life with you, and in time, I know that you will see
the many ways that we both help each other, be the best that we can be,
And how the Love we share may last until Eternity.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
