Lonely Island

I often hear people ask, for fun,

"What would you bring on a deserted island?"

Some think of survival and bring their gun.

Others want to explore in the highlands.

In all seriousness, what would I need?

A journal to write out my story?

My favorite book series to reread?

Something to pass time in this purgatory?

Ah, I know exactly what to wish for.

I need to bring you, my friend and my heart.

How could I be lonely with you on the shore?

The island may even be a fresh start.

On the island, I could see every myth

But it's nothing without someone to share it with.
