Treasure Island

(Just another dying day... / I'm fading away)

Your Loving Smile


O', my beloved
My love of yesterday
My love of today
My love so far, far away

Please, my beloved, wipe your cheeks dry
For it's not your fault, but the evil nearby
You threw your life into disarray
You loved another who went astray

O', my beloved, I hope and I pray for the years
I could dry your cheeks of tears
And protect you from all your fears
It's been a long-time, and it's been a while

But I can remember, your loving smile
So as you read this poem
Don't think of the world's madness
Keep your chin up, smile and forget your sadness

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I know, I know! WTF? It's not exactly my best piece. Eat me!
This was one of my first poems, like seven years ago, ultimately leading to my current structure of amusement, anger, rejection, etc. It's funny how that happens.

    Your Loving Smile was uplifting and an anthem of inspiration. Your O, my beloved refrain read like an old-fashioned poem of long ago. We fall down, we get up, our friends dust us off, we go on. Your Poet's Notes were very funny. :) All the best to you, Holly Jamestone (Report) Reply

    oh joshua, it's really difficult to make your beloved smile,
    when you're not with her and you're upset, too.
    nice! (Report) Reply

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
