A Poem by Beautiful Intentions


Do you remember the dream?
It had began the moment you and I
Had looked deep into the other's eyes
Yet it wasn't the first time that I had fallen, was it?
No... Not the first time that we had so collided
Back then just words sprinkled across maturing pages
The occasional giggle and gasp of likewise minds
And I never would I have thought
Not even for the briefest of seconds
That I would again have been so blessed as to find you

Now unable to turn away from our dream
Seeing us together as clearly as I wear the passing of time
How you would take my hand in those quiet moments alone
When it's just you and I and endless possibilities
Bearing witness to all the love of this world in a fleeting glance
When the smile upon my lips, the stroke of my tender fingertips
Matches the warm, cherishing glimmer in these eyes
These eyes that have gazed upon stunning you
Standing in the shadows... Bathing in the light...
And have been left forever breathless by the graceful vision

Dance with me once more amidst this beautifully undying dream
Taste of the summer sun upon soft, yearning skin
Laugh aloud in a tangle of limbs rolling about autumn leaves
Grasp me tight, hold me close to venture the winter's ice
And in the spring I will pick for you the first of baby blooms from our garden
Share with me the many splendid seasons until I kneel to one knee
Then share with me a hundred, a thousand more
To always feel the gentle brush of our lips with every blushing sunset
To not once miss the comforts, the serenity of arms in the morning
So you'll never forget that I am of you, as you are of me

Do you remember the dream?
It had begun the moment you and I
Had looked deep into the other's eyes
For not even time has dared to tamper with such priceless gifts, has it?
No... Still so lost, so found within the immense emotions, so decisively yours
Still looking forward to the stolen days spent twined beneath sheets
The compassionate caress of loving lips along teary cheeks
To stand beside you through the unknown, facing every bump
As lovers such as you and I will always have the other to lean on
And step by step, moment by moment, build a home

Full of burning desire and romantic intent..a love poem indeed. Your words caress like 'the gentle brush of our lips' and stir the emotions to the endless possibilities before to awakened lovers. liked the structure and the return to 'Do you remember the dream?' in the final verse. Full of warmth and delight and the prospect of days beneath sheets... I hope it is so... I hope...

Wow. This poem is beautifully written. I love the last stanza:
¨Do you remember the dream?
It had begun the moment you and I
Had looked deep into the other's eyes
For not even time has dared to tamper with such priceless gifts, has it?
No... Still so lost, so found within the immense emotions, so decisively yours
Still looking forward to the stolen days spent twined beneath sheets
The compassionate caress of loving lips along teary cheeks
To stand beside you through the unknown, facing every bump
As lovers such as you and I will always have the other to lean on
And step by step, moment by moment, build a home¨

As I was reading this I kept thinking to myself that the author "you" were giving it all up and that's a great thing. Lot of us can't do that. I like the how the beginning and end stanzas lightly mirror each other but are straightforward in their different perspectives. Enjoyed this. CD

do things such as this always last? or is it the memory of the most perfect moments, what we compare our lives to and those perfect moments with that perfect person, who never had the chance to destroy us.. that is the standard we expect.. I love your writing..

For me... For me it always lasts... Thank you so much, Deer. Your reviews are simply captivating.
True love is a powerful emotion and the foundation of any union. Love is expressed not necessarily spoken. Great question, do you remember.

Thank you so much, Howard.:) I am in total agreement here.
What a beautiful way to express the truest emotions of love, the word choices, the concept all of it are amazing... Gosh! I missed reading your works but I will come back now everyday... I think this poem kind of soothing to heart, like a dream that you watch with your eyes open and a breeze of love touching your heart... So beautiful... It left my heart feeling the joy and thoughts of innocent love...

Note: in the third stanza 'admist' could be 'amidst'?

A beautiful write frnd...

Sincerely
Dhiman
