Listen Lightly (poem)

Let’s listen lightly as I hold you tight

To song which seems to echo through our heart

One wonders where such music has its start

A dream perhaps beyond the edge of sight


A whispered wish which waits to play its part

This melody of memory’s delight

A tune to turn dark doubts to something right

And magic moments made for us to chart


So many tears have passed to bring us here

Such sounds of sorrow bared beneath the moon

Such sacred secrets shared with stars above


But here we hold to hopes a bit more clear

Like dancing daisies taken by a tune

Let’s listen lightly to the song of love

I can imagine a love story in a lovely poem. You see Mhatter99, when a poem takes me in, I dwell in it for moments. And these moments are 3 times repeated, that means I read a poem like this one over and over especially when words capture my attention and the flow starts rolling. Voted up and beautiful!
