Treasure Island

Owain Glyn


Understanding


I wish that I could understand,
I'd follow footsteps in the sand.
My essence I would give to you,
And I would beg you, to be true.

I know the things that I've done wrong,
Will never make the perfect song.
But, if anything is true,
It starts within my love for you.

The tide cannot achieve the shore,
The sun can't shine, and what is more,
That everything I have, will rest,
In you, when we have just caressed.

Grant to me, this final chance,
So I may just this once, perchance,
Show you the love have to give,
So we, in harmony, might live.

    A beautiful and very touching love poem. Love is the most important thing in life. All the rest is incidental and pointless without love. (Report) Reply

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
