Treasure Island

Jayne Davies

(5th October 1960 / Abercynon, Rhondda Cynon Taff)

If Only


If only life was easy, no obstacles to face,
Shoulder to shoulder, united in peace,
One loving human race.
If only we could press rewind,
Relive our lives once more,
Erase the many mistakes we've made,
Then give it another go.
They say our dear departed,
Go to a better place,
If only to see them one more time,
To touch their smiling face.
Cancer, the silent killer,
It brings such pain and sorrow,
If only there was a cure,
If only one tomorrow.
Many words are spoken,
So many are said in haste,
If only we hadn't opened our mouths,
For friendships too good to waste.
If only our wishes were granted,
To get the things we need,
Wouldn't it be such a wonderful place,
Such a pleasant one indeed.
If Only x

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
