Love Poem: In Dreams

Written by: Faye Gibson

In Dreams

In dreams I see you just like you are here,
the lonely years fade pale and drift away;
we are together in a distant sphere
beyond life’s disappointments and decay.	

There, enjoying happy times we once knew
before death’s greedy sickle swept the grain
and left me longing for love’s rendezvous 
in some glad tomorrow beyond earth’s pain.

I wake to mundane days as they are now,
blank and persistent sameness to my way;
I acquiesce to fate and humbly bow,
accept no partner in my sad ballet.

I shall wait; sodden skies must someday clear.
In dreams I see you just like you are here.
