Falling Tear


~ peaceful ease ~



Last night
I dreamt ~

We strolled....
arm in arm
down lovely paths
running through
a beautiful forest,
morning's sunshine
warm upon us.

And, each step taken....
bright, lilting birdsong
echoed among the trees,
squirrels everywhere
at gleeful play.

We were happy....
at peace,
and the world
was a soft,
loving place.

In every step....
we took together,
I could smell
your womanly essence,
as it blended,
with
earthy forest aroma.

Wildflowers' faces....
all in splendor,
turned...

as we strolled by.

And, we stopped....
just to watch sunglow
on the leaves,
in treetop splendor.

Your back....
against my chest,
my arms embraced around you,
your head nestled
upon my shoulder...
we looked upon
God's wonder.

And, I turned....
my head so slightly,
kissed your cheek softly,
and whispered,

"You are the loveliest of all God's creations.
We finally made it, didn't we?"

You gently sighed....
squeezed my arms,
and whispered,
"Oh, Darling,
I would not trade the world
for this moment!"

And, I awoke....
with a gently
falling tear.

Beautiful poetry Richard. Strange that dreams can sometimes provide what our daily existence can't. Wonderful imagery and tender thoughts. What a pity to have to face the reality after such bliss.

Thank you for these lovely words and the superb image you have posted.

"You gently sighed....
queezed my arms," ... I'm sure you meant squeezed.

I love the reverie of this moment, the breath of a dream on the cheek of day, the sweet tear of remembrance. Very nice.
