Treasure Island

wild fire

Who knew (poem about a soldier penpal)

who knew that after all these years,
you'd still haunt my dreams and
make me feel guilty for your mistakes.

Who know that all this time,
it was you who looked at the night sky
and pondered with the stars on my fate

Who knew that all these days
you would sweat and work
while I complained of dying

Who knew through the hard years
you were there wishing to help
but i never knew you were trying

Who knew that while I was here
you were there thinking of me
when i thought i was alone I wasn't

Who knew that when I was feeling down,
you knew the right time to send your letter
and always made my mood pleasant

Who knew that you saw me as a daughter
while I saw you as someone a stranger
and you comforted me just the same

who knew that even though I've never met you
I think of you as my father and guardian
who protects my heart and future

but most of all........

who knew?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
