When You Are Near - Poem by RHEY W. HEDGES


Feelings begin to swirl about,
sensations whirl within, without;
spirits rise to a higher plane,
Love burns with a hotter flame;
nothing in Life remains the same …
when YOU are near!

Alone again I dream inside,
forgetting all the tears I cried;
again alone I love and dream,
ignoring all the years between,
Love memories power my dream …
wanting YOU near!

‘Tho the years between us are real,
and your Love could be just a dream,
my spirits still rise with your name,
feelings swirl and whirl and enflame,
nothing inside remains the same …
when YOU are near!

We fall in love each time we meet,
blending our dreams of love complete;
cool reason doesn’t cool Love’s flame
that flares unbidden with your name;
Love’s different yet always the same …
when YOU are near!

I feel my Love; Your Love; Our Love; all Love …
when YOU are near!
