Forever a Dream


On the brink before slumber,
in blush of a moonlit night.
Felt brush from flowing tresses-
a feathery wisp, so slight.

Just a wink away - dreams form,
entering from behind closed eyes.
In the room - a presence swells,
a wish - given to its rise.

Upon a breeze of silent swish,
a silver light in draping veil.
Through darkness - seen silhouette,
on winds without a wail.

Out the window - sole shimmer steps;
past a portal of swirling mist.
Moments that halts ensuing breath;
forever after - lovingly kissed

Solemn words with promise of heart,
stayed the years - and life slipped by.
Fell endless tears to pillar's fire,
the count of dreams scattered to sky.

Each now whispers - softly sweet,
like wafting jasmine in the air.
To closing eyes- my eternal sleep,
I feel the sweep of flowing hair.

On the brink before slumber,
in blush of a moonlit night.
Just a wink away - dreams revived,
enters - my shimmering light.
