Treasure Island

norman ayres


When you're gone


Sometimes when i sit here staring blankly at the floor,
i hope to see your lovely shape standing at my door.

i would take you in and hug you, hold you deep within my arm,
protecting you from your dark life, protecting you from harm.

i think about this even as i put flowers on your grave,
remorse is all that i feel now for your life i couldn't save.

our love is very powerful but the cancer was too strong,
i loved you your entire life, and i still love you when your gone.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
