A Dream


My heart swells
And wells
With joy
When I picture
You and I
Floating among
The silvery cloud
Of Heaven's shroud.

Soul and soul
Conversing
Ceaselessly
Of the Book of Eternity
Melting
In the music
That springs
From the divine strings.

Swaying
We glide
Side by side
Feasting
In the myriad colours
Enjoying
The ride
Of the Heavenly stride
With the pride
Of a bride!

But lo! I let go
Your hold from the tingle
And roll down
To mingle
With this old
Cold world
To hoard gold
In every fold
With stories untold!

    A beautiful poem about a dream. You so brilliantly described
    scenery where there is dancing, singing and frolicking around the
    glorious Heavens finally to lose their grip and fall down to the
    troubled earth. An inspiring write and a joy to read. (Report) Reply

    A lovely read with beautiful imagery. Dreams are wonderful when you are hand in hand with a loved one. Ofcourse we always have to come back to this old cold world but that little joy stays with us. (Report) Reply
