Jamaica Gleaner /
Burning with a fire
I turned to him A stone
Rubbing the two sticks
Of my love together
Deathly still, inanimate, cold
It seems there is no honour
For unrequited lovers
Charting the last
Frontiers of the bold
Wish I had only
Learned as a younger
There is nothing worse
Than a fool
That is old
To a love that is dead
Like broken embers
To Quasimodo’s soul.
Lisa Gaye Taylor
The clock ticks life away
There goes another day
Tomorrow is never vowed
So live today anyhow
Life is short might sound cliche
There’s no do-over, no replay
So many of our loved ones are gone
Those left behind must carry on
Time has no respect for anyone
No matter what in life you have become
Like the wind that blows so swiftly
Life, it’s over in a jiffy
So have fun while you can
And bask in the rising sun
There are so many things you can do
Here’s my bucket list to you
Anything you want to get done
Do it and start another one
My journey in life continues
So I’m doing the best that I can do
By being kind and nice to everyone
Hold no grudge before the day is gone
Forgive and you’ll be forgiven
Do this and you’ll stay winning
Just like the prodigal son
To your father, one day you must return
The day will come
When it will all end
Your time has expired now
No more living
Please Do It for Me
I’d be deeply indebted to you if you grant my request.
You alone can add the missing happiness to my life.
Even though I know so little about you, your love will do.
And I spoke of the burning love in my heart for you.
Darling, I’ll ask for nothing else if you do what I want.
Take the chance this once and you won’t regret it.
The joy of having a child of your own begins with love.
I wouldn’t have suggested it if you were unable to do it.
You’d satisfy my intense desire if you give your consent.
Trishie, obey your heart, it’s telling you to answer yes.
I love you more than you can envisage true love is.
And the fondness you have for me shows in your eyes.
Baby, I’ll do anything you ask if you accept my proposal.
I’m confident that you understand my feelings.
Even though it’s too early to expect a decision from you,
Please do it for me because I approached you humbly.
