Lover By The Shore (poem)

Updated on October 9, 2012

Dedicated to the dreamers.

He waits for lover there down by the shore

The promise in his heart says she’ll be there

And they will share what were but dreams before

He feels her breath the magic in the air


Within her eyes the sparkle of the sea

The song he hears it whispers to his soul

Forever will caresses set us free

To have you by my side will make me whole


But voices from the town would come around

Reminding lover of the passing days

And still his dream is nowhere to be found

So why not cast aside these silly ways


Their days of doubt did wear upon his hope

But faith in her somehow this lover saves

Perhaps some welcome rest will help him cope

And as he slept a shadow swept the waves

      Mhatter, an enchantingly beautiful poem. There are times when the dreams are more real than the reality. Voting up.

      I love it! I love it both - poem and a stunning video! If she has to meet him on the shore like that, either she'll be mesmerized or ran away, lol.

      Mhatter, you always have the best taste on video picks. Mesmerizing!!

      Awesome, beautiful and interesting ++ sharing on my Passionate Poetry on Facebook. Thank you, Mhatter. Would love to pin too, but something wrong with my pinning.

      Ahhh, Mh, you dedicated it to the dreamers -sweet . . . sigh . . . sigh. There's that desolate shore again, where he seems to love to wait and wait. Yes, one does have to have that "faith" no matter what the town folks are saying. However, sometimes "actions" speak louder than words . . . he really needs to restore his faith in his "faith" . . .However, it seems he has lovely dreams in the end and a vivid imagination. Voted up, awesome, beautiful, interesting and I will say useful too.

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
