Treasure Island

Dave Pass


Love


Lonely, longing and in lust
But needing someone I can trust
Not just for a year or two
But for my life the whole way through

Joy and laughter, pain and tears
We’ve now been wed for forty years
Seen our children come and grow
From teen to adult in life’s flow

Shared success and failure too
Two views on life with me and you
Focus helps us miss a snare
A problem halved when we can share
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
How I long for you my dear
To speak with you and hold you near
To be with you and with you wander
For absence makes the heart grow fonder

Dispel dark clouds of tension and despair
Bring happiness and peace to thee
I hope you know how much I care
How much you mean to me

I think of you my love
This day and will forever
And thank the Lord above
For bringing us together

I love the way we share our hopes and fears
The way we walk in step and dance in time
I like to laugh with you and dry your tears
To share your feelings as we sit or climb

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
