Rock Me To Sleep

Three thousand miles
And mountains, lakes and valleys
Of longing between us

I go to work, as you go to bed
You, dreaming of making love
As I write poetry in my mind
Wishing I were there with you

The sun rises in the east
As you sail uncharted waters in the west
The ocean rocking you gently
Reminding you of me
And on the deck of the ship
You stare out into the sea
As the ocean mist softly caresses your face

Oh, how I envy the sea
Rocking you to sleep in itís body each night
Itís wetness clinging to your skin by day
While I on another coast
Lay dreaming of you

I long to fit into your arms
Like a ship in water
Being rocked to sleep,
Utterly safe in the breakers
But for now, I dream of the sea...
And you

This was beautiful, and delightful. You have a way with words. I loved the line:

Lost.....thank you very much. I had some good inspiration for this piece and the inspiration makes the poem.

Jim, you can find many on here and thank you......I'll email you a few of the older ones if you'd like.

WhtDove....I think maybe I just got a bad case of the flu But as far as the inspiration goes, It's been a while since I was inspired, don't plan on letting him get by that easily

Some great images in this one Hoot! I agree with Jim try to get this one published! I expecially love...

"Oh, how I envy the sea
Rocking you to sleep in itís body each night
Itís wetness clinging to your skin by day"

and

"I long to fit into your arms
Like a ship in water"

Really enjoyed this Hoot, whoever inspired you must really be good!

I fell in love and kept on falling
