There (poem)

He’s there amid the star and hope filled sky

The stranger who shares secrets with the wind

What dreams has he on which one can rely

What promise does he hold that won’t rescind


He’s there amid the silence of a song

The stranger who takes lovers’ hearts away

What dreams has he that keeps his spirit strong

What promise lightens each so doubtful day


He’s there amid the wishes and the tears

The stranger who so long ago was him

What dreams has he to settle new found fears

What promise calls him back to time so dim


It’s there they shared a lasting kiss goodnight

It’s there the last time he would hold her tight

Reminds me of a mysterious lover traveling through town, but not making any commitments. The woman never forgets.

Well done and voted up.

Mhatter99...o my, I do believe that I have wondered these words at some point in my life. The encounter was not this fleeting but it was fleeting none the less. Lovely, moving piece, thank you for sharing this with us.
