Come Here my Love

By: Burton L Aldrich

Come here my love
Sit beside me
Dangle your legs over the edge
Let your toes play in the current
Lay your head on my bosom
Feel my breath rise and fall
As I think of you
Hear my heart beating louder
Surrounding you in its warm glow
Tell me your dreams
We will dream together
Capturing eternity in our words
Painting pictures of bliss
To lullaby ourselves to sleep
And into the fairy tales we concocted
We will travel, riding our illusions
Out to the end
And waking to hear you speak
All over again
Passing the time of your accompanying presence
Until you leave me to my loneliness once again
And alone I dream empty dreams
Waiting your return and fulfillment
