Treasure Island

(13 June 1959 / Queens, New York)

Broken...


If all had been perfect-
If all had gone right.
My heart
would have claimed you
Not left you that night.
Yet I let you go...
Though I tried to wait.
Somehow I fell
Into the trap of fate...
How could I believe,
You'ld ever be mine?
That the thrill of the moonlight,
Or the sleepy sun on the sill-
Would move over to beckon
Another dance in the night.
Would coax you
to visit just one more time...
I lost you... in the soft autumn breeze...
And I lost you again,
as the summer winds teased...
Calling your heart-
To surrender in need.
A lesson well learned
Don't hesitate...
Or the dream of your passion-
That you so sweetly fashioned-
Will unravel like beads,
Falling into the cracks.
Never gathered again completely.
To revive a broken dream...
