Treasure Island

Letter to Lisa Mary


Dear Lisa
It's been a whole forty eight hours
I live without your smile and warm
I did so many wrong I'm not trying to claim right but to be love by you again

You are to me what a nest is to a bird
And sometimes I wonder if I could ever find a better home
Cause you're all I ever wanted in a woman
Black, motherly and enduring

Please find it in your heart to forgive me
Though it's hard to forget
Considering my careless actions

Without you Lisa, days are swollen
Night is like a walk in the desert
My thoughts are choked
And my world is but a handful
of chaff in the wind

Lisa
I'm taking time to write you this letter cause
I had never taken time to appreciate what I had, till I lost you

You should know that
I have grown to be a man
From the boy that I was
Hope this finds you still blossom in humility
You're the best thing I never had
Your Friend;
Lyrics Munachi

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
