Treasure Island

(september fourteenth, nineteen forty-one / gardner, massachusetts)

Where were you, when I needed you?

Where were you, when I needed you?
Where were you, when I suffered pain?
Where were you, when cold winds blew?
Where were you, when I went insane?

You were a million miles away,
Though you were there to see;
You caused me not to stay,
You caused me to run and flee.

Where were you, when I was lost?
Where were you, when time was running out?
Where were you, when love was tossed?
Where were you, when I was full of doubt?

You were fuming in your sleep,
You were a shadow on the wall;
Your indifference cut me deep,
As our love began its deadly fall.

Where were you, when I fell from grace?
Where were you, when it all came down?
Where were you, when there was no place?
Where were you, when my smile became a frown?

You were claiming God had talked to you,
You were hearing words I could not hear;
Did He tell you that your heart's untrue?
Did He tell you that I didn't want you near?

The uncertainty was killing me,
We were a pair no longer;
Once I was blind, now I can see,
And the hurt has only made me stronger.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
