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
