Dreams And Kisses - Poem by Charles M Moore

She sent him dreams and kisses
he mumbled every line
just folded scraps of paper
he read time after time
he hoped she would forgive him
for leaving her alone
a consequence of modern age
when working far from home.

    Expatriate experience. Fine, dignified language. Don't know if it you've been an expatriate for an extended time. I have. You nailed it. I was shaken by the veracity of this piece, carried back for a moment to an experience I'll never shake. Nor would I wish to. Wow. (Report) Reply
