Dream Lover

Dream Lover

A Poem by Will Neill

A heart broken man yearns for his dead lover


Dream Lover


In midnight shade you come

And brush my brow with phantom fingers

A ghost within a dream

A love yet real I feel

Gentle lips that soothe my aching soul

While I yearn for distant days we knew

Hush your tears I hear you whisper

And do not wish for what could have been

Lest your words

May cut like knives on skin

Hurting more than my absence still

Instead hold dear your gentle memories

Embrace them within your tender heart

And I will

Come each night as you sleep my darling

To be with you until time runs out

Then you can join me once again

Where we will stroll

I n heavens gardens among the wild flowers of eternity

Someplace peace and love transcends the world

Until then

I will be your dream

Beautifully tender and expressive. Oh to have dreams such as these. You would be longing for nightfall at the day's end. A super poem.
