Treasure Island

Daleen Enslinstrydom

(25-02-1967 / Springs, South Africa)

I had travelled


I had travelled the waters of the oceans,
I had seen many a starting sun,
I had climbed the highest mountains
and walked a thousand miles,
I had seen the faces of people
and smiled and laughed and cried.

I soured with eagles
high above the plains,
savannah swamps and desert lands,
I had met all kinds of horrors
and saw blossoms on millions of trees,
had faith, had experienced all kinds of wars
and saw how people died
and I had held a newborn baby
with innocence in his eyes.

I saw the pain of anger
naming the senses and broken heart
and I had lived through the anguish of loss
that breaks any heart.

I had experienced love,
the only thing that no one
can live without:
It opens the galaxies and stars inside
so that heaven can be seen
in the eyes of your loved one.
