Treasure Island

Nick Kler

Ashes of Time


How many incidents
How many thought
Vividly covered in this
25 years of our courtship
More than my age
When we started
No country, no law
No distance nor brawl
Could ever pull us down

In the midst of this
Life was happening
And we forgot of the fights
We forgot of our start

It was finally shattered
Just by a few unsought words
Ego became the master
Of both our worlds

All that is left now
Is the history that goes back
When I was young and naïve
Still learning to face
This brutal world indeed

I was hardly of a legal age
When we met, I just looked tough
Hardly knowing your name
Fire of ambition and sublimity
Was running high into the havens
Ready to conquer this world
Without a penny to our name

You had some plans
And I had some
So we merged each of them
And set out to live this life

How could we have known?
That our fates are heavily disguised
Planed a totally different future for us
And had it inscribed

Without ever getting a hunch
Without ever drawing a plan
We started out upon this journey
Spending 25 years together

Through thick and thin
Through obligations and mistakes
Through Love and hate
We were to fulfill those dreams
Together and forever!

I guess, forever came too soon
There was nothing that we could do
Bound by our egos and emotions
Just by a single match
It all came crumbling down
25 years of our past
Burnt into ashes of time

Lighting everything in its path
It left a beautiful burning skyline

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
