are you a dream come true?

are you a dream come true
like the ageless mist
with its hue?
you are the wind that keeps me moving
the force that guides me to know…
that it will all be ok
no matter what.

close your eyes now
remember the time when
i last whispered in your ear
and held you tight.
remember me that way.
that way, only.
it is how i remember you.

  1. I love your lines: “remember me that way. / that way, only.” They really give this strange almost desperate sense of need, yet the rest of the poem seems more a want. It is a great contrast. Really enjoyed this one.

  2. Aww..this is so true…
    At the end of the end, it’s all about perception, and how OUR MINDS decide to remember things.. no?
    LOVED the way you’ve written this one..

  3. Something about remembering one last moment before kinetic energy between two people dissipates seems both hopeful and mournful at the same time. Tough feat to accomplish with so few words. You have a wonderful poetic voice. Always wonderful to find something like this amidst the detritus of a Sunday night. Great post!


  4. I stand to be corrected, but I felt as though there were two voices in the poem. If so, you brought it out brilliantly.

    It is also a very comforting poem… nostalgic.

    I loved it.
