Sometime

during the night

i will dream of you.

 

You will not be there

to touch

to feel

to taste

but i will

dream of you.

 

i will dream

of times spent

laughing

playing

loving

together facing

life in all

its wonder and

glory….

 

Sometime

 

during the night

 

i will call your name

 

no one else

will i dream of….

 

no one else

will i call by name.

 

alone

you enter where none

have been allowed

 

alone

you have captured

the love i hold so dear….

 

Sometime

 

during the night

 

i will wake

 

alone

silent

frightened

wondering where

you have gone

wondering if

your skin still glows

the radiant glow of love.

 

your scent

its fragrance

throughout the room

fragrance of joy

of love

a scent i long

to taste

rolling my lips

my tongue

about it….

silently leaves

as soft

as quick

as the smile in your eye….

 

Sometime

 

during the night

 

i will dream of you

 

and quietly

softly

cry.
