Promise in a Dream: A Love Poem. ~ Edith Lazenby

Shadow Lovers

Promise comes veiled in a dream of kisses and fireflies

Landing on a patio on the wings of spring.

Full moon etches hope in view and all I am is what I do.

I offer a hand and a hope, care and affection.

People leave. People break. People change. People grow.

I know to hang on to let go, and let go…

Of all I have known and all I have given and all I have wanted

To give now a chance, to find blessings

In your fingertips and grace in the eyes I frame in my heart.

Nothing is safe. And yet I crave the care

My dad always gave and mom always shared, the embrace

Of a hold that is laced with feathers

And butterfly wings that moves with the seasons so we can

Both learn to grow and share the care

We long to know.

Love elephant and want to go steady?
