One kiss in night
To make all right.
One touch, one glance, one ask.
Trust it’s true and lingers still,
No hardship, lovers’ task.
Dreams live on
When two belong,
Connection does not sever.
Hold tight to reins, accept again,
Two hearts may love deliver.
In darkness deep
Reigns healing sleep,
Fantasy fuels the fever,
Thoughts and feelings, hearts and souls
Make of us believers.
Castles in the air arise,
Fully formed before our eyes,
Entranced by loving reveries,
Shadowed world in night time’s bliss
Still in mind imagining,
Aspirations, hope may bring,
Unsubstantial visions vie, for
Seeks solace, you and I.
Where world of dreams, reality
Coincide outside of fantasy
And love that bubbles up inside
May pour forth,
Dwell and abide.
In day to day of life anointed,
Fate decided and appointed
Who we love and why and how.
We question then accept
For greater than a mind’s unease
Resides tenderness that may appease
All who wander in their dreams, wonder in the night,
If life affirming love remains,
Hold on to all so tight.
No lover’s voice with whispered oath,
Still haunted by abandoned ghost,
Delivers words that once they’re spoken
Leaves hurt and loss
Or hearts unbroken.
A measured way,
Some little sway
In expectations’ path
Once again love sustains,
In future we may laugh
At all that seemed such hardship then,
Invoked the mind and so the pen,
Held fast to all that we hold near,
It does, my dear.
No love that’s ever given freely
Regrets those words announced so sweetly.
Our hearts not made of solid stone,
Delivered words, all heart displayed,
These do not die alone.
