Still She Dreams (poem)

Updated on May 31, 2012

And still she dreams off into night

What shapes this hope which holds her sight

The streams that flow were once delight

Gone is the one who held her tight

And still she dreams

And still she dreams


What does she see in nothing there

What secret wish commands the air

What whispered spark now holds her stare

Just why he left she’s unaware

Amid her streams

And still she dreams


Fair princess searching realms of why

She searches as her flowers die

Just emptiness to hear her cry

He didn’t even say goodbye

And so it seems

And still she dreams


He’s there to hold her in his arms

His kisses take the place of harms

What he made cold his tears now warms

To bring her back to all his charms

Tomorrow gleams

And still she dreams

      You are a gifted as a poet and I hope there is a market for this because this poem is priceless, yet worth so much in the hearts of those who read it. Beauty and speechless now.

      That was nice. I'd say something more profound, but I'm afraid I'm not much of a sophisticated poetry/lit kind of guy.

      But I know that I like it! Voted up and shared with my FB friends. =)
