Sweet Dreams

Updated on August 20, 2016
Source

For more romantic poems and love letters, check out these books:

For every morning that I wake, there is always a memory of a loss. A loss of a dream, an idea, a concept, a feeling. Finally, I have captured one such loss and encapsulated it in words.

A new dawn has broken, oh where has the starry night gone?

Away sweet dreams are swept, only faded memories kept

Words you spoke, are evaporating like tendrils of smoke

Fingers interlaced, holding our hands lovingly in place

Eyes so gentle and kind, quietly reside in my mind

Bodies embraced tight in hold, leaving desires untold

Fire shoots to my tips, imprints of kisses on my lips

Conscience begins to tug, bodies now only in a hug

Awareness taking light, how I wish it were still last night

Away sweet dreams are swept, only faded memories kept

A new dawn has broken, oh where has the starry night gone?

      "words you spoke, are evaporating like tendrils of smoke"

      "oh where has the starry night gone"

      The present fades so swiftly into the past, some moments perish without regret. Others with sweet sorrow for their passing always to be cherished.

      I am moved by your depth.

      "I quit following my dreams--I just asked them where they were going and told them I'd meet up with them later."-Mitch Hedberg

      I love this, though...
