Treasure Island

Adele Katie Bowling

(August 23,1998 / Dayton, Ohio)

Gone


Note: This is a song!




when something catches your eye
but you pass it by
when something makes you smile
but you leave it for a while

and it's gone, gone, gone
it's gone, gone, gone
say so long, long, long
'cause it's gone, gone, gone
for good

when something beautiful
makes you want to cry
when something's so ugly
you just want to die
but you say maybe
I'll change it tomorrow
but when you come back, it's gone

and it's gone, gone, gone
it's gone, gone, gone
say so long, long, long
'cause it's gone, gone, gone
for good

there's so many things
we should have kept by our side
but we left them to wilt
unwittingly said goodbye
heaven only touches us
once a million years
wouldn't it be awful to think
it falls upon deaf ears?

gone, gone, gone
it's gone, gone, gone
it's gone

how you wish
you didn't say 'so long'
because now it's gone
gone, gone
it's gone, gone, gone
say so long, long, long
'cause it's gone, gone, gone
for good

when something makes you smile
but you leave for a while
and it's gone

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
