About the Poem

Within our dreams we are able to experience true love that surpasses even a master poet's rendering with the written word. The true realities of these dreams can even bring us to tears of loss, upon seeing the morning's first light; however, this strong delicacy of our dreams contains within - our past, our present - and what very well may come to be.

Dreams

Love - it seems to me a dream
When twilight rests upon my brow
And fingers break the fragile skein
That separate the here from now

Atop a bed of silk so fair
‘Neath diamond starlight winks a'bright
Oh! Glorious eyes bold . . . I ensnared
Render wakefulness a futile plight

Luminous shines my pure white skin
Halo'd within a moonlit glow
Ethereal dreams don adoring grin
Cradle my body with lover's show

Sweet be mine upon this night
Where Chronos' rule traps us not
Within your arms, the dawn we'll fight
Nay, Loneliness! We deny our lot

Enrapture my senses dream lover mine
If only for our short short while
Let me taste pure love divine
Upon the lips of your tender smile

Alas - as dawn's light creeps slowly in
I am left with naught but a gentle tear
In remembrance of I . . . your arms within
Your strength abolishing my every fear

Love . . . it seems to me a dream
And I but a lonely twilight gleam
