Treasure Island

Edwina Reizer

Welcome to Paradise


Welcome to Paradise.
You've been gone too long.
Your journey's been hard
to learn right from wrong.
Mistakes were necessary.
That's how you learn.
And all through it all
your soul did yearn
to bring you home
and bring you peace.
Now for a while your
troubles will cease.

You'll renew relationships
and remember about love.
You'll vow to do better
when it's time to move on.
But will you remember
when that bright new dawn
appears and says to you.
'Live this life. Forget the last one.
For your brand new adventure
has just begun.'

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
