An Old Love Poem


There is a point in everyone's life where they dream
I used to be a dreamer too
Now I'm on the tail end of dreams and have...just one
I dream of being loved by you

Selfish dream, I know
but I always dreamed love would one day be true
and I gave it up, quit on it
and then there was you

And not I've got this terrible feeling
terribly lost and lonely too
and it's somehow turning out blue
and feels lost on you

Because in my dream
I reached out to touch you
and you reached for me too
I really wanted to believe it was true

But you shy away and silently play
as thought its just entertainment or something to do
but one heart is breaking in two
and the other is uncertain almost through

and there is nothing anybody can do
except for you
to reach for me
because I never needed anyone more than you

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
