Red Rock (poem)

Updated on October 23, 2015

It set upon a golden stair

With dreams of kisses waiting there

An island in a peaceful sea

Of stars that twinkled everywhere

-

It’s there my lover waits for me

To add our names so carefully

With legends who had come before

And share with them eternity

-

Red Rock a haven lovers’ hideaway

Red Rock a memory for yesterday

So to each night our dreams can safely stray

Red Rock a heart where lovers go to play

-

We grew and ran to Red Rock’s shore

But found a new world to explore

And left the stone to hearts that moan

While lovers dance upon a floor

-

Red Rock a piece of heaven slipped away

Red Rock a memory for yesterday

So to each night two children safely stray

Red Rock will keep our values on display

-

We were young and on our own

And through a tempest we were thrown

Into a world which didn’t care

As much as we about a stone

-

This rock without a single voice to say

Red Rock a memory for yesterday

So to each night a lover’s tear will stray

To the rock up on a hill

To the rock residing still

In hearts of lovers

It hovers

Warm covers

Like those of Red Rock

Music only

      Martin, this is beautiful. The lovers literally have their love etched in stone. No one can take that away. And all who see their names may likely want to do the same.
