Treasure Island

Your Hero


I wanted to be your hero
To cure your dying heart
I figured all you needed
Was just a clean new start

So I helped you put the past behind
And begin your life anew
What I never counted on
Was falling in love with you

It made things complicated
Things just couldn't work out
I saw you start to falter
I felt you start to doubt

I wanted to be your hero
To take away your hurt
I didn't mean to bury you
Under 6 feet of dirt

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
