Treasure Island

Heather Burns


A Golden Treasure


Oh friend
How I miss the times
we spent together

These are treasures
my heart refuses to
release

In the evening
when all is quite
your presence lingers

The golden threads we
have woven together
in this life time
remain securely
fastened

As we carefully
knotted the ends
tied them with pretty
ribbons

golden threads tightly
woven
creates a lasting
friendship

A gold and silver
treasure
to hold in reverence
not even death can
cause them to fray.

    True friendship (another form of love) is the most priceless possession in the life. Once you get or build, can never part from this. It give only pleasure and peace in mind right through and all through.... A lovely penning. (Report) Reply

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
