Tomorrow’s Promise (poem)

Updated on December 13, 2013

How tranquil is the gentle touch of night

The dream of you floats freely mid the air

Tomorrow’s promise you will still be there

As always cast this treasure to my sight

-

Sweet memories become a precious flow

Tomorrow’s promise there will yet be more

Rich splendors blesséd heartbeats by your shore

In heavens only lovers come to know

-

Tomorrow’s promise cannot fall apart

Or there will not be meaning for the stars

What crystal spring would quench the world like ours

What purpose lost can mornings help restart

-

How tranquil are the nights which will ensue

Tomorrow’s promise is my love for you

      A lovely poem Mhatter.

      Memory seems to have an unbounded capacity to hold unfulfilled promises, yet still we seek out with eager expectation that morning sunrise, which we hope shall flesh out one of those precious heavenly phantoms, which we forge in the fire of our own will.

      All the Best,

      R.Q.

      This is an amazing tapestry of words joined together

      to show the splendor of true love.

      Divinely inspired, your words speak of riches of the heart

      and the promise of dreams of tomorrow.

      Excellent, Martin!!
