Treasure Island

Wanted


Before, when he thought he knew
just what he wanted

He had spent his entire life
thinkin he knew exactly
what they wanted for themselves
Not realizin' that what
he wanted for them
was what he wanted

Then she walked into his life
And changed everything

Then he knew what he wanted
more than anything
To spend the rest of his life
givin' her what she wanted,
and knowin' what she wanted,
and bein' what she wanted

And then she was gone
And everything changed

He became weathered and worn,
wistful and wanting,
no longer wanted
He wanted no one
for she was the only one
he ever wanted

Now he knows, but it's too late
And nothing has changed

All that he has left to him
of what he wanted,
plays out in his dreams
All that he has left of her,
of what she wanted,
is in the wanting

And he waits
Till he wants no more

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,
