A Promise For Wishes



If I once more were to have you lying by my side
Like the very first time through the rain kissed zephyr
Whereafter you walked and pulled the curtains
Letting the sky and clouds see us as we saw each other

If you once more were to be alone with me in the woods
When the fawn scampered to your feet
And you playfully fed it your crumb
And led it to let you kiss its nose

If you once again walked close by me
Leaning on my shoulder and seizing my arm
As if we were melting in each other
As if you were letting me conceal you from me
And at times from yourself

And we treaded on sun dried maple
Breaking and creaking under your fragile steps
Sharing our fears and hopes
Our breathes letting our whispers course
To and fro our souls

Can you, once more
Give me,
Those times, places and blisses
And I promise I'll ask no more
And be gone thence

    1. Thank You for your kind appreciation.
      I try to be honest, where else would the truth flow from.
      And there cannot be art without truth.
