Treasure Island

Richard Lackman

everlasting love


I wonder if I'll ever find an everlasting love
Or continue as I have just drifting at the mercy of
An aimless current of emotions in a sea of doubt
Drowning in uncertainty as love I go without

I know there must be someone looking for my love as well
A beautiful Maria, Beatrice or Annabelle
As lovely as a poem set in timeless fluid rhyme
As soothing as a church bell ringing out its pleasing chime

How long must I wait for love to bring me to its shores
Where I can bask under its sunlight with a woman I adore
And lie in bed each night beside this creature soft and warm
A heavenly experience of sight and mind and form

So as I lay alone with only hope to nurse my heart
I pray to be united with my loving counterpart
And then to float forever on a cloud sent from above
As we live on together in an everlasting love

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
