Treasure Island

Romeo Della Valle

(Ageless / Dominican Republic)

Welcome to My Heart!


Just when my life
Was about to collapse,
Drown in an ocean of pain
And desperation,
You happened to come to me
Wearing the perfume
Only found in the flowers
Of my colorful garden…

You have come to me,
Not too late
But just in time
When I needed you the most!
As I expected you to,
As I painted you in my mind
And saw you
In my peaceful dreams!

No more finding parts of you
Scattered all over the world,
Now, you have finally
Come to me as a whole!
Here is my now healed heart,
Newly painted and decorated
And ready for your expected arrival!

Convinced I am
That the search is over
And nothing will stop me
From telling you loud and clear:
“Welcome to My Heart my dear”

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
