Within The Dreaming Hours

There within the dreaming hours
Whisp'ring voices soft exclaim
Carried on the gentle wind
Calling, calling out my name

Haunting echoes from the past
Loved ones lost, so far away -
Through my mem'ry sweet souls drift
So upon my heart to play

In the shadows, thus I see
Images of those no more
Flick'ring phantoms, as pale flames
Dancing on the distant shore

Reaching out, can I touch them
Hold them in my trembling hand -
Through my fingers they would slip
Ne'er be grasped, like shifting sand

So within the dreaming hours
I shall linger, in my mind,
Be with those fixed in my heart -
Know the love, once more to find

    This is such a beautiful poem Val. I dream about loved ones gone
    all the time. I think that dreams shows us that we can continue to keep them
    if only to be reminded in a dream. A fantastic write.

    I often dream of my father who passed on many years ago, how else can we stay in touch if it weren't for our insightful dreams. Your poetic words make the dreams come true......

    Sometimes I wish I could stay in that land of dreams. No worries there. But the cruel morning decides to awaken me.. love this one.

    Beautiful echoes of past loved ones nudging you to hear their whispers of love in the gentle breeze of your dreams.
    Inspired write!

    How beautifully you've described those rare and precious happy dreams - so much better than daytime memories.

    A great poem again, so simplistic in the telling of what we see and feel.
