Forever Paradise (poem)

Updated on February 6, 2013

There on an island in time’s endless sea

Which blooms in every blessing shared by you

Again forever paradise I’ll see

-

I never knew how happy I could be

Until you gave my rainbow whole new hue

There on an island in time’s endless sea

-

The world I knew grew different to me

I searched your eyes in hope of hidden clue

Again forever paradise I’ll see

-

We learned to meet life’s challenge happily

And dreams we had were tales we made come true

There on an island in time’s endless sea

-

Then came that day of darkest misery

I wondered by your side through mist of dew

Again forever paradise I’ll see

-

I went to window hoping to be free

Where memories returned a change of view

There on an island in time’s endless sea

Again forever paradise I’ll see
