The Voice (poem)

Across soft fields I hear it calling me

A tender voice sings welcome to my heart

A sheltered comfort promise to impart

A wish a dream a safer place to be

-

This all I know is drifting towards its sway

This scent of something sacred meant last

This place where future kisses are all cast

This space this time this season meant to stay

-

For now I must brush fantasies aside

For starker world still waits to see my smile

For this became my meaning for this while

For hope for aid for comfort from the tide

-

And still my soul with voice now yearns to roam

And she and dreams and memories are home

When the dream calls, it's time to begin the kisses and make the dream the reality.... but it is also a poet's nature to dream.

Beautiful poem.
