Lovers Of The Candlelight (poem)

Like dancing stars they met the night

Mid mist and moods of sheer delight

Their dreams their wings to give them flight

These lovers of the candlelight


What vision did they have in sight

What promise held their hopes so tight

What secret gave them clarity

These lovers of the candlelight


Such wonders would these two ignite

A rush a heart was thrilled to see

A chance to touch what couldn’t be

These lovers of the candlelight


Each kiss a wind swept melody

They touch what passion longs to free

As time stands still and reasons flee

These lovers of the candlelight


Soon sleep must meet reality

As dreams drift toward their destiny

Did it happen a chance maybe

These lovers of our memory

mh - Thinking back in memories deep, can keep one from getting much sleep, look up and go forward instead, before dreams have withered and fled. Beautiful poem! Good job!
