Here I Lie Dreaming of You

Here I lie dreaming of you,
Taken from me so many years ago,
It’s the only thing I have left to do.

Your glistening eyes of cobalt blue,
Illuminates the night of fallen snow.  
Here I lie dreaming of you,

Velvety hair shimmering through  
Moonlit forest, a golden glow,
It’s the only thing I have left to do.	

Why did you break my heart in two?  
And why did you have to go? 
Here I lie dreaming of you,

My eyes shut and I suddenly knew,	
We’ll soon rejoin in the eternal flow, 
It’s the only thing I have left to do.	

My time has passed, and my life through, 
Angels take me to our final plateau.
Here I lie dreaming of you,
It’s the only thing I have left to do.


Lost Love

You did really nicely with this one. There were some very pretty lines in it and you really showed the quality of nostalgia thru your words of dreaming (the only thing I have left to do). It's GREAT. Luv, Andrea

A difficult poem to write is a villanelle, but it appears you pulled it off well (Hey, that rhymes!) Good job, Greg
