'Neath swaying oak boughs I seek,
Searching for what I have forgotten.
My heart's fluttering is becoming weak,
Tender as the rays of a dying sun.

Leaves of emerald grace my skin,
A velvet shroud of nature's mystery.
My quest for the heaven's now begins,
Though no defined path do I see.

Evening shadows blanket my soul,
Casting about a dreamy twilight.
Only glimpses of you do I know,
For darkness will not grant me sight.

I fear to tread these steps alone,
Without a hand to guide me there.
Only when your light has shown,
Will my eternal skies be fair.

So as I stumble within the night,
Please do not loose sight of me.
Together we can have an angel's flight,
And within love's embrace, simply be.

Great poem my friend! I enjoyed the imagery and found some lines quite catching.

"'Neath swaying oak boughs I seek,
Searching for what I have forgotten."

That line caught me for some reason. You snagged me quick, Krista.
