Me, Without You? - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns

Have I taken a wrong turn?
Is this our last hurrah?
Should I kiss tomorrow goodbye,
Since my heart is torn and raw?

If crimes and misdemeanors
Were lain on me some way,
Would my crooked heart, love’s prisoner,
Last forever and a day?

I’d wish upon a rainbow,
Where dreams sometimes come true.
Then wealth beyond King Solomon’s mines,
I’d find coming true in you.

Before the long kiss of goodnight,
My soul resting on the line,
A mighty wind blows nowhere fast,
Catching dreams you still are mine.

In scenes gone by, white sandy beach,
Feet pushing pebbles in the sand.
Just one more time I’d like to feel,
Your love while holding hands.

Initiate me back to new romance,
Then love me to my core.
For if from you I find that,
I’ll want for nothing more.

In mind’s chambers there are secrets,
Where secret gardens lie,
Our love shoots up as flowers,
Where our seeded hopes won’t die.

In your ears I softly whisper,
Where do we go from here?
Can we revisit that dimension,
Where love Is treasured and revered?

I will never tell you,
That there is no going back.
For me without you darling,
Would derail me from life’s track.
