Within His Sleep (poem)

Within his sleep a Joyous tune

And when he woke again commune

With lover by his side there strewn

And kisses couldn’t come too soon


He turned to her his source of light

His soul with wonder would ignite

And somehow all his world was right

As morning drew the end to night


I love you was their sacred tune

And with it splendor they’d ignite

Was ever time which felt so right

And wishes dew would come real soon


For in the shadow of the light

A truth with which he must commune

A fate with which his life was strewn

For him there’d be no end to night


For kisses all were gone too soon

And in his bed alone he’s strewn

And while he dreams the two commune

Within his sleep a Joyous tune

Another lovely poem. And, I enjoyed the video, too. I love listening to Hank Williams, Jr. His songs are so meaningful - like your poems.
