VERSE / SONG new & used
Secret Dreams (a valentine)
In the dark before this dawn
I'll find you in your room
Asleep, your breath the only sound
I need to hear. I'll wait
And as the dark gives way,
And birds prepare the morning air
With song to make you stir,
Deep in down, stretching warm,
A gentle smile will linger soft:
Escaping tale of secret dreams,
And I will catch my breath.
A shy caress, the rising sun
Will let his fingers play
On pillowed strands of gold.
Shall I reach out and touch the hand
Nestled there? And will you wake
And smile again to melt me heart and soul?
Or shall I fade in morning light:
A ghost who'll watch and see you well
But never show a face?
This was not intended to be as creepy as it might sound.
Many a Valentine’s day lover might say the same.
