In Dreams She Comes (poem)

Updated on July 14, 2013

In dreams she comes to me

A broken memory

Of things not meant to be

Another world apart


She whispers come along

A chorus of a song

Whose hold on me seems strong

Amid an empty sleep


Her image I can’t place

A mist does veil her face

Yet still I feel a trace

Of what she was to me


A kiss mid summer’s trees

The fantasies she frees

A world a time to please

Oh tell me once again


And still I hear her call

As reason starts to fall

What lies behind this wall

Which keeps me from her side


My passions there she holds

My destiny she molds

As what was real unfolds

Within this realm she roams


Then suddenly a knife

Appears to end this strife

If I would pledge my life

To dream for evermore


I took it and I prayed

To whom my soul pervade

As my heart felt the blade

And I greeted morning

      The ending was a surprise. We can relate to the heart's rememberance of love and the sadness of it's loss.

      You are funny in your limericks. But in other genres, you evoke different type of emotions that take you deep within your soul.
