In Golden Dreams


A tender day,
long ago.
My heart belonged to you...
I imagined so hard,
of the mysteries,
That would follow...
When one can take time
and spin it-
Into golden dreams.
And so, in youthful acceptance
I did believe...
That I carried the key to your heart...As you mine...
One day,
after so many
passions of meaningless
devotion.
Your voice, at long last-
called to me...
So how was I to believe-
a promise made
was to be kept?
And thru my own heart,
I broke yours.
Now here I sit,
And the haunted memories...
Of all I lost,
have born
themselves once more...
I call myself -
the Biggest Fool...
You must be laughing -
after all this time-
Did I do you a favor?
Releasing you from your honor-
of keeping a promise
made to a child?

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
