The Web Of Time - Poem by Heather Burns

In the rustling of the leaves
someone called my name

a voice so familiar
same old haunting refrain

hearing you on that Autumn day
My mind seemed to float away

to another time and place
visions of your handsome face

feelings just won't go away
keeps returning day by day

Caught up in the web of time
ever returning in my rhymes

if I could take tomorrow
trade it for today

I'd wrap my arms around you
never let you walk away.

    The romance tinged with regret gives this poem the atmosphere of a scene from a classic film. This is such a feminine poem - thank you for sharing it. (Report) Reply

    if I could take tomorrow
