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.....

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
