Strolling through our quiet garden Dreams of you flit through my mind Reading a tattered, old love letter Crinkled and yellow with the folds of time My heart is warm with gentle memories The ebbing sunlight teases my face Thoughts of love transport my being To a different time and place A vision appears in the misty moonlight Where we stand with arms entwined My tear-filled eyes gazing into yours As you promised to always be mine I still remember how my heart fluttered Ah, just the thought of it brings a smile Welcoming all those strange awakenings For by your touch, I was so beguiled Our hearts shared a love everlasting And a passion that has never waned So, in my placid garden of sweet solitude I'm waiting breathlessly till I see you again Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© May 10, 2008 All Rights Reserved
