A Dream Perhaps (poem)

A dream perhaps and yet I was unsure

A scent of flowers stealing me away

My heart repeats the rhythms of allure

My mind’s adrift in soft and silken sway

-

Her song so sweet and warm soon filled the air

Her passing casting me into her spell

Each pulse a kiss a wonder that she’d share

Each thought a passage wishes she new well

-

All night she thrilled me filled me with her song

All visions drawn with strokes to live upon

Harsh beats across an ocean something’s wrong

Harsh notion opened eyes and she was gone

-

A dream perhaps that only heaven knows

Yet on a pillow by my side a rose
