As I lay myself to sleep

As I lay myself to sleep in the dusk of my heart The sky still shines bright Luna streams through the blinds Its porcelain glow reflects honey in these almond eyes ....and I think of him a gentle descent on my pillow-case golden firefly's radiance cascading upon rosy silk satin face A frozen star melting in the silence of my arms lavenders' kiss embracing unworthy lips But when the night is over like an autumn leaf in early breeze He is carried away....far far away Far too gone, to utter words I so wanted to say ... and each misty morn tired footsteps mark the path to the old oak tree which witnessed our dream our shared peach ,our holding hands our blissful joy and distant tears There I sit, alone but not in solitude by that grassy stone,which holds his name engraved Secretly,I whisper to his soul Unspoken thoughts I yearned to say 'You are gone..but never gone I might arrive late..yet never too late I feel your absence in my bones like cold air on a rainy day but tomorrow ,somehow,somewhere Our May garden blooms pink blossoms by the promise of today' Ps-This is a fiction poem.. But in reality..Let show love to those who are dear to us today Cause tomorrow who knows If We are to stay??? Inspired by a song-If tomorrow never comes

    I'm glad this is not real but you made it feel real. Your advice at the end is very wise.

    How can I fav a poem using the phone? I don't see this option. Tomorrow, I will fav it (I'm reading your poetry before going to sleep). This poem is one of your best ... and all of your poems are "best"!! : ) I can't copy and paste the lines!! What's wrong with the smart phones? : D I love every line but the last two of "almost" every stanza are exceptional!

    It's exceptional! I enjoyed every line - every word of it. The romanticism is original and your very own. It became a fave already! Thank you for this beautiful write that adorns the art of free verse. :) G.

    I enjoyed reading this one. You are right, we never know when the end is here. Best to speak than to hold on to words forever. Keep up the great work....TAH

    Hi Charmaine, what can one say, this is a wonderful piece. Your words sing out of the page too touch the heart. If your story were real this man would be as a Dark Man, the Dark Man must run before the sun. The picture painted is in itself a most beautiful portrait of the joy and sadness of the Angel of the night. Your words flow with grace and charm. Really enjoyed the read. Catch you later. Your friend, MIKE.

    You write these yearning romantic poetry so beautifully well, Charma--so many wonderful lines here with your own voice of enchantment (that's how I 'see' your poetry)-- the message you bring here is so true as well-- I knew that song title was familiar, ha so now I am listening to it-- and thank you for telling me how to pronounce Quccija, I hope I said it right :), Maltese seems more complicated than Filipino! hugs and kisses to the little one!

    I know of this song. It's powerful. What a feeling expressed in your lines! If absence makes the heart fonder, then what happens if one cannot see another again. Is it null & void? I have many thoughts lingering as I read this stunning write-up. Truly one of your best expressive pieces of love & want, yet...
