Listen Lightly (poem)

Updated on June 28, 2012

Let’s listen lightly as I hold you tight

To song which seems to echo through our heart

One wonders where such music has its start

A dream perhaps beyond the edge of sight

-

A whispered wish which waits to play its part

This melody of memory’s delight

A tune to turn dark doubts to something right

And magic moments made for us to chart

-

So many tears have passed to bring us here

Such sounds of sorrow bared beneath the moon

Such sacred secrets shared with stars above

-

But here we hold to hopes a bit more clear

Like dancing daisies taken by a tune

Let’s listen lightly to the song of love

      I can imagine a love story in a lovely poem. You see Mhatter99, when a poem takes me in, I dwell in it for moments. And these moments are 3 times repeated, that means I read a poem like this one over and over especially when words capture my attention and the flow starts rolling. Voted up and beautiful!
