I Read Your Words

Before I close my eyes in sleep
Before sweet dreams my soul do reap
I read your words, I read your words
And I find treasures hidden deep

Before I bid farewell to thought
Before my reason comes to naught
I read your words, I read your words
And I relish their wonders wrought

Before I drift on clouds of white
And I traipse through the starry night
I read your words, I read your words
And the universe fills with light

What of MY words, these very words?
Do they lull you to dreamland too?

    The answer is yes and I am sure I am not the only one who can answer this question this way. Excellent words as always.

    The affirmative answer is music to my ears! Thank you, Richard for visiting my work. It's no secret that your poems are filling my favorite folder quite nicely.

    I do study the poems I read on the soup. I never flash across any and some do indeed stay in the mind right up to the point sleep takes those thoughts to a different place. So in short the answer is yes. Take care, Richard

    Well, I'm so thrilled that you faithfully read my word, Richard...that is heart warming indeed.

    For me, the equilibrium floats. Is that sufficient? :) Another beautiful piece, simply asking how much does one value you. Excellent.

    ;) Hi Drake....equilibrium is a good thing, isn't it? Otherwise....everything is out of sync and that can't be good for anyone!
