What the Island means to me, words, just words
for A place far away, one that I have never seen
nor mentioned of ‘til I was almost age fifteen.
I’ll not go into circumstance, it’s better left alone.
Suffice it to say, there is an empty spot in my life
for which I place no blame. It can’t be changed.
When I stop to think of away back then, my life,
where I was concerned, my God had so ordained.
I will live out my time to dream of what might
have been on beautiful Prince Edward Island.
But in the end, what could have been the cost
I could not ever stand the loss, of the U.S.A.
I met and wed the lass meant just for me, played
and worked and worked together, raised a family.
We’ve been back and forth to Canada but not ever
to Prince Edward Isle tho’ I yearn for the day to be.
It’s my belief that each and every one of us
should have a dream to look forward to, and a
lifetime partner with whom to share it,
or life would be a quicksand to suck you down
into it’s core.
