Tomorrow’s Promise


I dream in red
feeling warmth
through the sheets
from last night’s passion
where your hands caressed
the trail your lips created
blushing a little
from your slow moving actions
our synchronized rhythm
soul to soul with no division
but this was only one way
of loving you
one part of being with you
I want more than a memory
stretched into forever
for you and me
hoping this dream continues
even after sunrise
I know it will
from the promise
of tomorrow in your eyes

  1. I want more than a memory
    stretched into forever

    Ideally this would be the case for all things we appreciate and cherish. At my age though I am thankful for merely the memories(at least the ones I do remember).

    1. Your comment touches my soul, Don! Thank you so much and you’ve brightened my day, knowing how this poem affected you. Thanks also for reblogging. I truly do appreciate you sharing my work. I’ll visit you soon and have a wonderful weekend!

    Thanks for the tip into this Don…

    Hi Lauren,
    You realised this altogether successfully in a very evocative way that touched me artfully with sensitive points of recognition throughout … A beautiful, soulful piece – very much my
    kind of thing – I will be back to see what else you come up with… With Best Wishes Scott

      1. Lauren, when time permits please do visit to experience Scott Hastie’s writings. He is really quite remarkable and I believe his style and conveyance will parallel your own in ways. Scott has a marvelous portfolio of publications to his credit and has a considerable following. Scott afforded me the honour of an advance read of his just released ‘Angel Voices’ for which I have written a review…a marvelous work that is an extension of this gifted poet’s heart and soul. You will surely respond as I have with fondness and friendship for a fellow poet who brings a tremendous visual and heartfelt response through his every word.

        His works are what literary arts are all about.

    1. You’re most welcome Scott. When I share the written works of another it is a visceral response to words well apportioned, transitioned, crafted to capture the imagination and in some way move me to respond in a positive way. I only recently discovered Lauren’s wonderful works and admire where she takes her compositions. She has a gift.

      1. Don, I apologize for replying late and I don’t know what to say, either. I’m flattered by your kind words and a little stunned, too. I’ll always call myself an amateur or novice poet, but your words definitely encourage me to continue writing…thanks again!

I appreciate your thoughts!
