One day soon, the clocks will stop
but we shall go on, regardless.
Forging new beginnings and
sharing restless dreams.

I walk by the river often,
where nobody goes alone
and whisper your name to the wind.
For I have to share
what makes my heart glad.

I shall be there by evening
breathless, just in time
to catch the golden fire
of the sun going down
for the very last time
and hear the distant owl
in the neighbouring trees.

So all is well...

Sing me a song
and I will hold your gaze
and your hand to my face.
We'll share some fine wine
and good verse.

Then,
I will lie in your arms
and kiss you into
The Rapture

Beautiful. You must have felt glad after creating it. Very romantic poem, soft flow. I marvel at the probable interpretations the title of the poem could have. I loved the last stanza which again gives way to multiple perceptions. Well done. Supratik

Hi Supratik,
Yes, a poem to show my softer side 😉 I think i have deliberately made it sort of obscure as a statement that in all things, at the end of the day, love triumphs and is all that matters. There is a lot of love in the poem too. The last line can be read different ways.
It was of course, written for somebody, and that person will have understood the imagery etc.
However, I hope it comes across as simply a love poem with a different slant.
I am glad I got a comment. Once I had 120 reads and no comments on another poem. haha

OOOOH, tingle me raptures! I have a wolf claw up and down the spine with this one. A forthright and well-distilled love poem. Mitch

This is the perfection I aim for, and always miss, when I write this type of poem. It is outstanding in it's simple beauty with love flowing beside it like the river. Loved every word. It's going into favs. Sue.
