A WHISPER FROM DREAM
On child's swing in softest sway,
She turns her head, she looks my way.
Seductive eyes giving of gleam
I've only ever held in dream.
Her shining hair, a sultry tease
Of golden waves upon the breeze.
Her lips, the plush pink of a rose
Longing to bloom at Fate's disclose.
I can't help but fall to the eyes
Of love welling in sweet surprise.
Nor feign the hand of heart found weak
From the soft white touch of her cheek.
Come delicate to calloused fingers,
A moment froze in time yet lingers.
The lightest whisper falls away -
Upon one word I hear her say.
Releasing soul from chrysalis
With wings of love to find her kiss
Beneath the lover's moon abeam,
I wake to find ‘tis but a dream.
Yet by one word so soft-spoken,
Holds my heart promise, unbroken.
By wish, by sigh, if Hope's endeavor,
She whispers to me now, "forever".
