A Little While Longer - Poem by Francois Hoon

A little while longer we lie in this stillness of earth
The time silent, as it flies by to the ending of our mirth
Your presence brings peace in these moments sweet
Your touch release a stir long forgotten till now this meet

A river runs between us and the world
In a dream we live for moments few
As our hearts our minds and emotions swirled
We stayed sheltered in this time on morning dew

To capture this moment we indulge it’s gift
In time stolen from reality and sense we flee
To places of depth serene only us can see
To dreams of delight unknown we kindlingly lift

My sweet, a little while longer hold on with me
To places of prospect that right now we cannot see

    This is a very romantic piece that I cannot understand and therefore cannot recommend.
