Lovers’ Dreams (poem)

Updated on August 14, 2012

He’d spend his days dreaming of you

Each heartbeat reminder of you

The sun’s in the sky just for you

Sweet scents that flowed by came from you


Each tune was a love song for you

The words he’d rehearse were for you

He’d feel every second go by

Another reflection of you


Oh how did he live without you

He listened for some sweet reply

Some reasoning that might apply

The world he knew spun around you


Now here is this shadow of guy

Who once possessed keys to the sky

But now should he laugh or just cry

For still not a word heard from you


The wind very clear is his sigh

As tears gently kiss young man’s eye

The walls fill with echoes of why

That’s how lovers’ dreams slowly die

      Thanks for this - a great poem - only the flowing memories left - there's the old adage ' better to have loved and lost then never loved at all.' But I'm not totally sure I'd agree.

      Mh -

      Whatta journey. When starting, I thought this was going to be a "happy ending" type of poem. But then, boom, all of a sudden, emptiness and loss. You snuck up and smacked us in the face!

      Great Job!

      Sad but so true. It can be an eternity if one waits for those that will not reply.
