Scent In The Air (poem)

Your Joy is the scent in the air

Each whispered delight you are there

The sweetest resolve moods you bear

It’s you who spreads dawn everywhere


Before you each day just passed by

Small reasons to care or to try

Each promise of hope empty lie

A wonder how I made it nigh


Then music unknown filled the air

From a window which I didn’t try

And there all my future would lie

This dream would resound everywhere


Strange fear now wouldn’t let me by

Though all my wants awaited there

Was this the end my heart must bear

To drift mid night when dawn is nigh


I prayed escape from everywhere

Aware of pain that I will bear

To open eyes and you’re not there

Your Joy is the scent in the air

Such beautiful words and only too sad when we must open the eyes and swiftly say goodbye to the temporary dream state.
