Treasure Island

Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

Two Different Lives?

Had she misunderstood those warm invites
To travel and taste a different world?
Her sheltered close life denied her. She might
'Tho allow fancy to fly. Control learned,
She could only re-read the lovely lines
Of tenderest words, and bury them deep
In her innermost soul. Unbidden, her mind
Now uncovers new dreams, secrets she'll keep.
In different places within her warmed heart.
Knowing, once found, soul-mates are never apart.
