Treasure Island

Ezekiel Chard


Don't hold me back


Loving you I was, without doubting once
Waited for you I did, I couldn’t lose a chance
You of all flowers, lighted a smile on my face
It was you on my mind, and my heart ever since
Why I can’t move on? Please don’t hold me back
Together we were, though moment didn’t last
Down in the green valley, time wasn’t a waste
Your radiant colors, I was happy to see at last
Like all other flowers, your love was fading fast
Why I can’t move on? Please don’t hold me back
Not rose or jasmine, you were of special kind
All the moments together, I can’t get off my mind
Haunting me you are, your voice is in the wind
Heavy my heart become, when new flower I find
Why I can’t move on? Please don’t hold me back
Around the world I moved, I still smell your scent
Lonely bee I’ve become, for your holding my heart
Together we can’t be, and too bad I can’t forget
In love unlucky we were, different ways we went
Why I can’t move on? Please don’t hold me back
What can I do to forget? I’ve tried every spell
Unable to love again, it’s like I am living in hell
Captive I am, without passion I want to feel
In the bottom of misery, is where my heart dwells
Set my heart free I beg, so I can love again
Quit tormenting me, so I can’t feel the pain
Other flowers in the valley, their love I can gain
Why I can’t move on? Please don’t hold me back

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
