Treasure Island

Gordon D Wilkinson

(Oxford - England)

When you love

When tears roll across your cheeks
This heart bleeds a little
As your eyes close in pain
It dies a little
If it detects your despair
Into two pieces, it breaks
Never to be whole whilst you’re afflicted
So smile a little more
Wipe away those tears
Give me your pain to bear
Let me carry your cross of despair
Only then can I too heal

    This is very moving Gorden..
    Hey remember when I first came here, you said,
    woman can make men look like headless chicken running every where blah! ! ! !

    this is good..very touching and moving.. not like your fun and witty ones..
    hey It is kinda incongruous when you write such one.....

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,
