Treasure Island

I'ev got you


I've got you right here
running through my mind,
towards the finish line yet unclear,
advancing with the threads of time.

Shadows of your love coming nearer,
to the labyrinth where hopes unwind,
I've got you serenading into my ear,
piercing tune with stitches that bind.

My soul to yours sweetly entwined,
upon a road paved with bliss to burst,
in splendor we’ll embrace a life sublime,
and love each other into fading dust.

When day has worn away towards sunset,
I've got you when the nights turn cold,
Having formed by minds our liquid asset,
You are greater value than paved gold.

I've got you sharing every moment’s success,
when pain has turn and triumph over failure;
I’ve got you with all those endearing riches,
but can this wealth be such a crime to fear?

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
