Lingered Into Night (poem)

Updated on December 10, 2013

Within my arms we lingered into night

With vast horizons there before our sight

What dreams what wonders waited to ignite

What will unfold to fashion our delight

-

Somehow the moon was saying so much more

I never saw the stars so bright before

And with each instant how my heart would soar

Within my arms the key to heaven’s door

-

Uncertain of what happened there that night

We kissed as we did many times before

Imaginings or did we really soar

With lovers’ breeze to heighten our delight

-

Amid the stars we gazed at so much more

Our endless Joy was spread beyond mere sight

A world awaited us two to ignite

A welcome light adrift on fortune’s door

-

Now was it real or was it sheer delight

These lovers’ dreams are easy to ignite

But when I looked into my starry sight

Within my arms we lingered into night
