Treasure Island

Love


In the voice of the wind.
My heart calls-
but the only answer it hears
is my own...

How did I come to love one-
who never can love back?
How did I give another such right-
To break my spirit,
and tear up my soul?

Help me Jesus,
for I'm sinking fast...
Please give me an answer-
As my heart can't grasp the pain-
that's inflicted.
And the depth of it all...

Everytime I whisper to the wind-
To return
My Love,
to me....

Would I ever be worthy-
To know such joy?
Can laughter ever greet my ears?
Or only tears fill my eyes?

Is it ever possible,
That one...
Somewhere...
Could....
Ever love 'Me'?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
