Awakening

He held me last night until the dark did slip away
We shared each others secrets ‘til there was nothing left to say
Left only with the comfort of two hearts beating as one
Knowing what we felt could never be undone

He whispered that he loved me softly in my ear
Then shouted it from the roof top so all the world could hear
We held each other so closely we seemed to be the same
And nothing that we shared brought us any shame

We danced upon the moonbeams to an imaginary song
It seemed as if the stars knew that we belong
High above the world where lovers share their dance
Not letting things like gravity get in the way of romance

We sailed across the ocean on the sea flavored like wine
And every word I spoke to him, he finished the last line
Our wings they spread together and we flew so far away
Then the strangest thing happened at the start of day…

I heard a ringing loudly somewhere near my head
I opened my eyes widely, and there I was in bed
What a vicious awakening from a dream untrue
Oh well, hit snooze again, what can you really do?


------------------
Let my words fall first upon deaf ears before a closed mind...

loved the unexpected ending

------------------
i never call a poem "nice" or such,
for that would not be saying much

I must admit that I am one of those people who loves to sleep, for as I have always said "I dream in color". The things that pass through my head in the hours when my body lies resting are some of the best stories I've ever known. So yes...this was truly a dream, one of those you hate to wake from!

------------------
For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...
