Michelle (poem)

Updated on September 29, 2012

When morning came Michelle was gone

Another wish had kissed the dawn

Yet as we dreamed what worlds were drawn

Enough to build lost lifetimes on


Each heartbeat sparked a fantasy

Was this how all was meant to be

Each footstep formed a memory

Of this and more she meant to me


Within her smile all doubt was gone

An endless flow of what could be

Delight upon our memory

As kisses called to carry on


Then darkness challenged fantasy

As yesterdays began to dawn

And in their wake such tears were drawn

Enough to draw Michelle from me


And so before time carried on

A kinder world were curtains drawn

Where flowers’ dew awaked the dawn

When morning came Michelle was gone
