I Walked Into A Dream - Poem by Pete O'H

when she walked out of that door
i walked into a dream

we held us desperately
before any greeting
loving this intimately
needs no formal meeting

'eternity has passed…'
said she in a heavenly way
'…since i last saw your face'

was it not more than that?
'it was centuries ago, yesterday,
that we last did embrace'

touch was thought
kiss was speech
words mean nothing;
stars are in reach

flowers hold no place
to the garden of her face

'beloved, do you not…'
said she, pushing away
'…feel that something is wrong? '

'my darling, no…'
i said in dismay
'…i had only begun to hear your song! '

then she walked past, as if a stranger
i had forgotten, i walked into a dream

    yes Pete, from start to finish - you captured the love you had for a stranger
    beautifully. the re iterance of the last couple to emphasize the first - works.
