Treasure Island

Owain Glyn


Lost


Every day, when I awake,
I think of you,
Every night, before I sleep,
I think of you.

The dreams I had,
Included you,
The best of me,
Was within you.

The sun shone,
Within your eyes,
And darkness,
Within my lies.

If I could change,
A single thing,
And make, the love,
In your heart sing.

I would! !

But time has passed,
And I am lost,
I cannot calculate the cost,
Of everything, that I have lost.

Moons still wane,
And suns still rise,
but everyday, it's a surprise,
That still, I think of you.

I guess my time is almost done,
My eyes will dim, and lose the sun,
If I could choose what I would do,
It's simple, I'd make love to you.

    loss always brings sadness and regret, whatever its reasons
    and you have described it in a beautiful way
    interesting work, I like it (Report) Reply

    We live and love and lose love spent
    And think of past our long lament
    In rueful harmful harsh torment
    'Til another sees our sadness rent
    Then in loves form we fall and vent
    And grow in fading discontent
    Hoping love is permanent
    And long may we be suited yet.


    Alternative last line: And hope I'm not incontinent.


    Thanks for the nice poem. (Report) Reply
