I touch your fingers writing in the sand, ‘I hope this love never dies’.
I rise in the air and see ourselves embrace
I am on the outside looking in,
I see sadness with tears glistening on your face,
You’re calling my name you beckon within

Fantastic poem... what a nice expression: I feel I am a third person! ! ! 'I touch your fingers writing in the sand, ‘I hope this love never dies’'... I hope that the fingers of DESTINY will write both your names on a Rock in the mountain of true love... a 10 surely... wael karameh karameh....

Fantastic details of the dreaming imagery. Just a silent movie without the celluloid projection, projected simply by words. And the catastrophe establishes again the oft-quoted parameter...Truth is stranger than fiction. A nice piece of art. Thank you for sharing. Regards, pranab 10+

A beautiful narration, Ken. Life is a dream and within it we dream, In both the dreams we smile and scream. Thanks. CP
