Poem-I am an Island

I am a little island somewhere
With waves lapping at my shore
They are whispering of laughter
And a man I could adore

I sit and watch them ebbing, flowing
Gently wash my aching feet
I wish I could be something else
With others I could meet

I am a little island somewhere
With waves lapping at my shore
They are whispering of laughter
And a child I could adore

Eyes closed I see you happy playing
And I write your name in sand
Your love awakens me to life
As you hold onto my hand

I am a little island somewhere
Just as lonely as the night
All consuming, daylight looming
Drowning out in pale dim light
