Before the Twilight Falls

If sleep should steal your soul, my love,
Before the twilight falls,
Then I shall be there by your side
When’er the darkness calls.

I’ll hold your hand and soothe your brow,
Your cheek set next to mine,
To kiss you long and taste your lips
As sweet as vintage wine.

And should such darkness fall on you,
Within its shadowed space
You’ll find my eyes there shining bright
Upon your ashen face.

Know this, my love, I promise that
You’ll never be alone,
My heart will follow as you go
Across that stepping stone.

Our life shall always be as one,
Not ever set apart –
Through all my time, I’ll ever hold
Your mem’ry in my heart.

    An excellent love poem genuine expression of faith trust and commitment. When I read second and third stanza of your poem I was reminded of your earlier poem 'What say you my heart' where you wrote
    'Sleep like a babe so tranquil
    in the arms of loving care '
    It is sheer delight reading your poems.

    In sickness and in health till death we do part. A beautiful poem
    of love, care and devotion. So delicately written and expressed
    with great emotions. Nicely written

    I was welling up there Val. Another gem.

  • Rod Morris (8/24/2013 7:40:00 PM)

    A moving poem of deepest love one being can have for another. I'm sure this is the way it is meant to be when one knows they have found their perfect match. Beautifully crafted and a pleasure to read. You may enjoy one of mine called Smitten Keep up the writing so as I can enjoy the reading, cheers, Rod.
