The Promised Isle (poem)

Updated on April 9, 2016

We made it to the island we were drawn

This place so long ago we dreamed we’d be

Here is the hope we built a life upon

Just open up your eyes and gaze with me


From here the sea we traveled looks so calm

Bold storms enhancing shadows far away

While here soft breezes offer heaven’s balm

So rest my love there’s time enough to play


For all around such wonders to explore

And time it has no purposes to keep

And cares became the things of fabled yore

All this and more when you wake from your sleep


Dream on my love we made our promised isle

And as you dream I’ll be there in a while
