Hand in hand

By: Bill

We walked for hours, hand in hand,
With yellows, reds and gold.
The tree lined streets and dappled light,
Alone in love we strolled.

We laughed for hours, hand in hand,
The two of us as one.
The setting sun with crimson sky,
Your heart at last was won.

We talked for hours, hand in hand,
Your face my only view.
The moon above reflected love,
For I wanted only you.

We sat for hours, hand in hand,
We drank from each other's cup.
My life sublime 'til the end of time,
But sadly; I woke up.

I sat for hours, alone and sad,
With thoughts and dreams I knew.
With wishes of what could have been,
If asleep I'd stayed with you.
