Desert Island Blues: A Diary
Author: Colin Stewart


Six months after the shipwreck:

"I think of you both night and day
but my mind is weak and tends to stray.
Any glimmer of hope can only betray
this broken heart which is here to stay."

Two years and all alone:

"Tell our daughter my one regret
that she and I had never met.
I'm proud of her, I love her so.
Please never let my legacy go."

Three years and I've given up:

"I reach out now and touch your face
with a longing for this warm embrace.
My spirit has dissolved without a trace.
Desolation ensures this sad disgrace."

Four years and I know only fear:

"The damned has found a place for me.
Your face is the one I want to see
before I rot in this living hell.
Oh God do you have a story to tell?"
