Dreams Of A Heartbeat (poem)

Dreams of a heartbeat which I came to know

So tender those times when I held you tight

Echoes from moments of so long ago

-

Basking in the warmth of sweet lovers’ glow

Two wandering souls then seemed to unite

Dreams of a heartbeat which I came to know

-

We drift in a realm which time would bestow

Each whispering sigh our hearts would incite

Echoes from moments of so long ago

-

Familiar refrains of I love you so

That music of lips brought wonder delight

Dreams of a heartbeat which I came to know

-

Now this has all passed to sorrows of woe

And all which remains are shadows at night

Echoes from moments of so long ago

-

And still she returns devotion aglow

Faithful reminder to keep this in sight

Dreams of a heartbeat which I came to know

Echoes from moments of so long ago

Morning !!

Great poem mate !! for me the last stanza really was super strong and ended the piece wonderfully .

The repeat of the last line in each stanza has also really taken the reader into the emotions of the piece reiterating the genuine pain being expressed .

Exalt !!
