Leaves Of Life

Leaves Of Life long poem

The pages of a book, the leaves of a life.
Pictures of a love overcoming strife
Moments in time, captured for posterity
Reminders of a past filled with love and hilarity

Memories are all that the pages now hold
Dreams of a life now lost and cold
The warmth we felt from a beating heart
The cruel reality of a soul torn apart

We walked long roads lined with beech and oak
In warm woodland pools we would swim and soak
As the sun set neath distant horizons
And stars came to life so high in the heavens

I know that one day we will dance once more
In our hearts we’ll feel the eternal score
And all around will be smiles of glee
All that I ask, will you wait for me?

Life As A Dream

Life As A Dream short poem

I kissed the pillows of her cheeks. Covering myself in the blanket of her caress. While here nothing is heavy. Maintaining the balance of smiles in the bed of her arms She doesn’t mind my snore, relaxed in complete comfort.

Through the breeze A slight scent of mint The Sumer didn’t even make a dent In the column of cosmic debris Hollow leaves with colors that bleed In Autumn the colors turn red To awake the barren lake Columns of
