The Taunt of your Kiss...

I had a dream last night…
That sat me straight up in my bed…
You were teasing and kissing me…
And I felt the passion, but it was only in my head…

I shook myself awake, I looked around in fear…
It felt so real, close, so very close…
Then I realized you were only a ghost…
And I was only looking at myself in the mirror…

I stared for awhile at the room we once shared…
The bedsheets undisturbed that laid beside me…
Were taut, unruffled , not turned over, pristine…
Fore you were sleeping in another’s bed, and left me shivering…

The taste of your lips.. the taunt of your kiss…
Will take me time to get over…
I dreamed many times this is how it would be…
On my death bed… you would kiss me so gently, and reverently…

You would whisper in my ear “I love you so my dear”.
I will be with you forever in the stars…
Wait for me at the Pearly gates…
We will dance like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire..

I gazed into your eyes like the day we met…
Mesmerized by your energy, your aurora and spirit…
Your lust for family and faith…
Then you would calm me by brushing my long hair until I fell asleep…

As I said it was only a dream…
You chose to leave me with empty promises…
You tantalized me many times over…
I have waken… truly waken…we belong to each other no more…

Never for us will we share a sunrise or sunset…
Never for us will we talk about our singing in rhyme…
Never for us will there be a board game, poem or a joke…
Never, never, never now …. defines us..it’s written in slate…

No more songs, no more dancing until dawn…
No more reasons to stay up all night long…
Our offspring will understand in time and space…
We could not get it together, last time, this time, next time…
We allowed it all to escape…
In ghostly memories…In ghostly memories…
I choose to forgive me………..
