All My Life - Poem by Raymond J Wright

I awoke this morning
to find you
sleeping in my arms
if only in my dreams

when I crawled from my blankets
I still felt you on my skin,
tasted on my lips all the places
they had been...

...and with every single breath lingers
the scent of all your sweetness...

I swear to God above
that if given a pure chance
I would take you in my arms
and love you all my life

    R, this is simply dreamy. It is where we all want to be. You take us there. In a piece that flows and is memorable. The mark of a fine poet, methinks. t x (Report) Reply
