Promised Rest (poem)

Updated on June 19, 2013

Music Only

The sun has kissed another day goodnight

Close your eyes and dream with me be with me

Love with me open up your mind to see

Tomorrow’s waiting somewhere out of sight

-

For here and now what’s real revolves in you

Close your eyes and drift away slip away

Love away open up your mind and stray

So precious is this time for a renew

-

For here again our love has stood the test

Jealous teeth that gnawed at us pawed at us

Sawed at us torment’s flames enjoyed the fuss

Yet here we are to kiss our promised rest

-

The sun we knew has said its long goodbye

Close your eyes and softly sleep secrets keep

Love to reap open up your mind and leap

To sleep a dream of one as blessed as I

      It took my breath away it was so beautifully worded---I could almost hear a deep voice reading it out loud---overwhelming.

      Your Hub Friend,
