Dreams to Remember

Saturnine fields
Lay fallow
Upon the shores 
The wind does not breathe
Time to stand still
While I hold you in my mind
 
I am reminded of bucolic days
And nights that never ended
We lived and loved
And walked together
Though never hand-in-hand

In the moon 
I saw your smile 
A whisper in the trees
Your voice 
Danced upon the breeze

Like a satellite
Twinkling in the night
You circled my bed
Angel of silence
Not a word was said

In the morning
I would drink tea
Waiting for an aberration
To be found in the pattern 
Of the leaves

Alone, oh no
Not I!
For I have a dream
A dream to remember 
Though often I do cry.

    This touched me in a familiar way. The sense of longing is evident. The last stanza...man so powerful. It's a bittersweet thing...dreams. --at least for myself. Always, Laura

    Indeed, this poem is very moving, leaving one wanting for more, wishing for reality and the inevitable.

    Yes lost love is always painful. We must learn to move on...easy as it sounds it is very painful to the heart. ~Kilmer

    Enchanting and mystical. It's sad that she is only a dream ... very moving

    I have a few that I thought I wrote too quickley, they just seem to come and flow onto the paper... doesn't happen that way very often. When it flows it's magical. Well done

    Sad indeed. Thanks for taking the time to read. Some of these I write very quickly and wonder if I even should put them out there... Kilmer
