Another Day Another Dream

I know that

you are

there

hiding behind

a smile,

a fleeting look

a shared word,

a coffee,

growing cold

on

a

pavement café.

I know that

our paths

have

yet to cross

the signal yet

to turn to green

but I know that

you are there

innocent

as one

can be

time and tide

having drawn

lines

on our world

worn faces.

In a crowd, behind

an unopened

door

In a dream

before daylight brings

remorseful wakening.

leaving that look

that said

yes

to my every

desire,

the hand that

touched my

soul

before my

aching body.

wrapped in

quiet solitude

I

contemplate

what

will

never

be.

I love this line: I know that

"our paths

have

yet to cross"

A wonderful poem of hope in finding that special someone.

Not knowing when and if you will find that person can be agony.

The daydreamer leaves us with many wayward thoughts, detached from reality yet so real. Love this.

Your poetry is fitting in nice here in my quiet solitude, thanks for sharing.
