Treasure Island

Jessel Jane Tevar

(December 6,1988 / Philippines)

..to be forever with you never


When I was but a withered leaf,
where art thou my love?
When air was scarce, I hardly breathe...
When I longed for you to be there,
yet you were there never.

When I was but a wasted stream,
did you ever think of me?
did I ever evade one of your dreams...
when I wished for you to be there,
yet you were there never.

When I was but a ruined song,
my love, where art thou?
you left me thinking all alone...
how you could be with me forever
when on my worst, you were never there.

    You have an incredibly beautiful, poetic soul and an amazing smile, don't wallow too long in the heartbreak let your smile shine, radiate that love you posses. (Report) Reply

And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
