Treasure Island

You Know

You know
What I wish
What I need
What I think

What I want
What I would do
What I would be doin'
What I long for and yearn for and ache for

How it could be
How it should be
Where I would be
Who I would be with

What I hope
What I dream
What I believe
You know

You know
You know that I am here
More near to you than anyone
I know you know

What means it then that we are sundered so?
If these hopes that flow from you are true,
If this sweet expectancy is not fantasy,
Help break down what between us stands
For bein' without you is unendurable
Because in you I love, because I know
What you know best, be not therefore afraid:
Souls need not burn for souls,
Spirits need not cry for spirits
Come, that we may know the splendour;
Together we can find what was meant for us,
That which only together we can know

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
