To my sweet love


I lay here dreaming that you love me
In that half twilight world between sleep
And being awake just before dawn
When it is neither night nor day.

And a tear comes to my eye as I cannot
Have your affection. In this dream you
Are smiling at me with your iridescent eyes
Of limpid blue looking softly through

The haze of that smoky mist of dreams.
Your soft mellow brow twinkles a
Beguile wanton softness as I slumber
In this my twilight world.

I gaze and in that flood of limpid blue
My spirit wanders free. Only that now
The new dawn begins to wake me from
My slumber and my lonely torture begins.

    She is never gone as long as you care to remember
    And at your bedside unseen she will always stand
    And someday or some night you will eventually join her
    To hold hands once again in a more beautiful land

    Deep feelings of missing affection expressed in the poem. The feeling is all the more intense just before dawn when one does not know what world one is in. Only way out may be to remember all the pleasant times. (Report) Reply

    A moving write, echoing a sense of longing and loss!

    The new dawn begins to wake me from
    My slumber and my lonely torture begins.

    It is when the world teems with activity, that one is reminded more of one's loneliness! (Report) Reply
