I'll Weave A Dream For You - Poem by Lora Colon

The threads of love are on the loom -
I'll weave a dream for you;
All the pain that swells your heart
Will soon be out of view

Drift away on the gentle waves
Of Fantasy's deep stream;
I'll stay close by, guiding you
Through this enchanted dream

Our two hearts, chained to loneliness,
Offered a silent prayer,
Unaware our utterings
Stirred and startled the air

Now our love shines bright as the sun,
Although the world be dark;
Meagre are the moon and stars,
Life itself, but a spark

Though confined to love's gilded cage,
We've no cause for despair;
Our hearts soar on wings of joy,
For Heaven heard our prayer

Two hearts sing in an unknown tongue,
(Love's language has no name)
While the blessed words pour forth,
Our love kindles the flame

Every night, I weave the same dream....
What could be more divine
Than love's first embrace and kiss,
When your hand first held mine?

Dearest love, as this dream unfolds,
Cherish the things you see;
They're held captive by the night.....
But dawn will set them free!

    Remember! it is only a DREAM! ! ! Snap out of it. come to your senses. bake me a cake instead! ! !

    not my favorite of yours, but it had its moments:

    Drift away on the gentle waves
    Of Fantasy's deep stream;
    I'll stay close by, guiding you
    Through this enchanted dream

    and

    Every night, I weave the same dream....
    What could be more divine
    Than love's first embrace and kiss,
    When your hand first held mine?
