What I Want For You Not Me

Of a dream deferred no more
Speaking different worlds
Of things alike alight
Present in my life
Some once time ago
Never could be touched
And beyond the things
Once only dreamed
More love More touch
That only
My tears could sustain

Our timorous voice does speak
Even for unhearing ears
Then comes to me
A love A willow tree

Of a dream deferred no more
Speaking different worlds
Of things alike alight
Present in my life

What I Want For You Not Me by 


Written for a most astonishingly beautiful woman. So much so that I knew I could never make a life with her. Instead we have become lifelong friends. I have spent many Christmas’ with her family.

    Isn’t it interesting to look back at our writings and feelings? This one here tells a whole story in few words. beautifully done

  • It is! This is one of those rare gems I call a ‘perfect piece’ because it captures all the thoughts & feelings and has the ability to regenerate them every time I read it. Perfect in the sense that it fulfills all the intents & purposes of poetry for me. I wish I could write like this all the time! Or at least a little more often.

    Thank you for your compliment.

    A great gift to give, when we want more for someone than we want for ourselves. Great job!

    Just out of reach. That’s sad. Lovely writing, though.

  • THank you!
