I have to believe that one day, I’ll be with you, happy and free. So trust in me, Dear, when I say together, at long last, we’ll be. Through each lonely night until dawn In dreams you come to me sweetly. I wake, thinking as day goes on together at long last we‘ll be. Even though now I can’t have you, Forever I know you’ll love me. That is the one thing I cling to. Together, at long last, we’ll be. I have to believe that one day together, at long last, we’ll be. Written June 2016 for Teppo Gren's Evergreens (Golden Oldies) # 3 Poetry Contest and inspired by Andy Williams' "A Time for Us" (This is actually a Kyrielle Sonnet, but that form is not listed here at Soup)

"Sweetly" and romantic, Andrea. "Through each lonely night until dawn" reminds me of last year's suitor. When I told others of him, nosey people said they hadn't seen him. I'd tell them he wasn't very big, was so very shy, but could serenade me throughout the night. Some laughed, others groaned, when I told them Henry was a cricket.:) Hugs, Mikki

With that song as the inspiration and having written this as a kyrielle sonnet, you have produced a very love optimistic piece! The best to you in this contest!

This would make a good prisoner's song. How about Johnny Cash doing the vocal. Love, daver

Very romantic and dreamy. I am working through July - I may take a long trip in August.. I just saw "On Your Feet" on Broadway - the life of Gloria Estavan. I am going to see "Phantom of the Opera" soon. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
