Lora Colon

If You Awaken Before Me

If you awaken before me
And I'm crying in my sleep,
Take me in your arms and kiss me,
Give me reason not to weep

If you awaken before me
And I'm smiling happily,
It means I'm dreaming of your love,
Make my dream reality

If you awaken before me
And I'm shivering with cold,
Let your body become my quilt,
Let your sensual warmth unfold

If you awaken before me,
Gently, darling, pull me close,
Tell me just how much you love me-
In poetry or in prose

If you awaken before me,
Please, never leave me alone,
I panic when I don't see you,
And your whereabouts, unknown

If you awaken before me
And you need to hear me say:
I love you more than life itself....
Awaken me..... you know the way!

    Wow absolutely loved this, beautiful, from the tears of the opening stanza 'If you awaken before me
    And I'm crying in my sleep, ' to the intrigue of

    If you awaken before me
    And you need to hear me say:
    I love you more than life itself....
    Awaken me..... you know the way!

    that resonates 'Awaken me..... you know the way! ' I can get lost in that line :)

    If you awaken before me
    Circle my neck by hug glee
    Surround me by warm sea
    As rose bud by honey bee.

    Thanks for this lovely poem. Though, it is kind of a monologue of a loving heart, the second part is an obvious one that makes it a romantic dialogue.
