Forever’s Treasure (poem)

I turned my head toward hope and there she’d be

Pure magic were those moments we’d attain

Forever’s treasure bourn to memory


When world of shear confusion tortured me

False happiness was harder to maintain

I turned my head toward hope and there she’d be


And with each kiss a dream would be set free

A dream for some but lovers would explain

Forever’s treasure bourn to memory


And so we’d flow creating fantasy

Against all doubt one wonder would remain

I turned my head toward hope and there she’d be


This tick in time our island set at sea

Where happiness would taste the golden rain

Forever’s treasure bourn to memory


Again we’d set to yesterday I’d flee

Soft music in my heart plays sweet refrain

I turned my head toward hope and there she’d be

Forever’s treasure bourn to memory

Is there ever a light more beautiful than the one reflected in a womans smile , or a sound more intriging than her giggle, a scent more addicting that her perfume , a promise kept longer than her dedication ?A pain more permanent than her leving ? Awesome ++++
