Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Until The Sun On The Horizon Appears


Because there is no other love,
Than the pursuit of a dream kept...
One foresees to believe,
A sweeping away debris with obstacles to rid...
One stays focused on a chosen path,
Until the Sun on the horizon appears.
To shine brightly upon one devoted with faith.
And long projected with steps set in motion made!

And because there is no other love one feels,
Both day and night to not subside from one's sight...
A done sacrificing satisfies what one knows inside,
That an arrival will eventually take place to embrace.
Regardless of negative comments naysayers make.
One stays focused on that chosen path,
Until the Sun on the horizon appears and at last...
To brightly shine upon the one devoted and focused.

Although decades may pass no doubts interfere,
With time spent others impatient accepted as waste.
Those found nonbelieving yet sharing their bitter tastes.
While the one welcomes the Sun that comes to shine...
To bask in delight what eventually is witnessed and done,
Of a dream kept to pursue come true!
And that sacrificing one has accomplished to do,
Achieves to receive that which had been kept believed!

'No more tea to pour for me please.
I've had enough of that!
I'm grateful to just sit here and reminisce alone.
With a witnessing of what my kept faith has shown.
However...
I do wish to thank you for respecting my privacy.
And with such courtesy you've left me to remember,
I will never forget.'

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
