IN
MY DREAMS




size=+2">by



Auguste







            


I call her in my dreams at night


I whisper all the day


I glimpse her in the twilight


Strolling along the way






But it is not her, this captured gaze


She faltered along the rungs of life


Just floating gulls on an evening breeze


It is not her, my wife






In days now lost she clung to me


Until that day drew near


A breath of love we whispered free


I whisper still my dear






I long to have her back again


To mix our tears and hearts as one


And hold her through the dark,


still night


Until the day is born






So full of joy, so full of youth


She left in the twinkling of a star


Behind she left but truth


And a life not traveled far






The house is as it was that day


With everything in place


As if she left but for a moment


And again I'll see her face






But deep within I know she's gone


To never touch our home again


To never hum the melodies


As so used to I had been






As the sky becomes dusty lace


And azure melts to smokey gray


Starlight paints the scenery


As shadows show the way





  
She is not here this dark, quiet


night


Fate took revenge and changed the


scene


She has lost herself in light


And I have lost myself in dreams

This is beautiful, but tragic. I know a lot about living in dreams... Good job

So sad, so beautiful, and so well expressed, my friend. Your poetry is a poignant language all in its own.

I just had to read this one again...I understand this sort of dream, really.

Nice writing, Michael.

No wife as of yet.. but I love it anyway. =)

 "The storm rises up when the shadows descend
every beat of my heart every day without end
I will stand like a rock I will bend till I break
till theres no more to give if thats what it takes
I will risk everything I will fight I will bleed
I will lay down my life if thats what you need
every second I live thats the promise I make"

I have no idea who wrote this... tell me if you know. =)
