Can He Really See What I See


The night sky shone of glittering stars
as she gazed upon the splendor
and wondered does my true love
See the same stars I see
can he feel the same breeze
That caresses my cheeks
As I stare into the sunsets of old
Does he see how the stars
Are arranged in the sky
For star gazers to depict
What they believe is there
in the night filled skies
Does he feel the sand?
as he visits a beach
a lake that shines and glitters in the sun
Can he hear the birds that sing to thee
Sweet songs of melodies
I reach out to him
and hold him close
But grasping thin air
I sigh with a note
of despair at not seeing
My loved one hands
Sharing the sights and sounds
Of what Mother Nature gave to thee
Can he really see what I see

    a good poem that deserves to be poem of the day. It might be worth using a question mark,
    Can He Really See What I See? is grammatically a question... (Report) Reply

    This is a picture of pure phantasmagorical elegance, its accentuated with romantic innocents that it puts me in the mind of where you are. Its seems simplistic but the feelings you posses are complex and intricate, even if your lover does not see the stars, then he should understand your words. Great stuff (Report) Reply
