Within His Sleep (poem)

Updated on January 16, 2017

Within his sleep a Joyous tune

And when he woke again commune

With lover by his side there strewn

And kisses couldn’t come too soon

-

He turned to her his source of light

His soul with wonder would ignite

And somehow all his world was right

As morning drew the end to night

-

I love you was their sacred tune

And with it splendor they’d ignite

Was ever time which felt so right

And wishes dew would come real soon

-

For in the shadow of the light

A truth with which he must commune

A fate with which his life was strewn

For him there’d be no end to night

-

For kisses all were gone too soon

And in his bed alone he’s strewn

And while he dreams the two commune

Within his sleep a Joyous tune

      Another lovely poem. And, I enjoyed the video, too. I love listening to Hank Williams, Jr. His songs are so meaningful - like your poems.
