Your gaze touches me
Can you feel my heart beating?
I feed on dreams of us
to escape the pain I’m feeling

 I envy oceans’ waves
when they caress the shore
Your loving embrace I miss
how I long for when we were

 Time is my enemy, though
for it moves slow as honey
but sweet memories of your kisses
remain my true company

 One heart, one mind we’ll be
and I’ll see life in color again
for now, my head lies on your pillow
with love for you I can’t explain

    “I envy oceans’ waves / when they caress the shore” … sigh, this is beautiful, one of those “I wish I’d written those lines” … lovely write, Lauren. Sending you love and hugs xoxox

  2. Lauren I think this one is exceptional. Maybe it is beause years ago at one point this is exactly how I felt but would never have been able to put it in words.

    And the final two lines just wrap their arms around the whole poem; beautiful.


    1. There are moments in life that are sad and bittersweet, Rumpy, but without those moments, we wouldn’t learn and grow…thanks for stopping by! Copper says, “Woof” too! 🙂

  3. Your words touch hearts and souls to the deepest parts of our being, i am moved by your emotion and what your heart shares…I can only smile Lauren for your poem is too lovely for words…but if i was to try, it is breathtakingly beautiful. God bless my sister!

    1. Oh, dear Wendell, you have me speechless! Your comment means the world to me, as you are a master of digging deep into the souls of your readers with your moving words…Sending hugs and blessings your way, brother!
