Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams

A presence enfolds me in warmth serene
Soft, gentle breath upon my cheek,
Untouched yet sensed in a dream

A glimpse of knights shimmering armour
Waiting upon the mount of knowledge
Utter faith in my surrender to his will
I relent, trust in karma
Drawn into depths of laughing eyes
My denial of truth now shattered
Not a sound escapes these parted lips
Yet Infinite words flood the mind
Dare not fight this jubilant heart
Melting quick with resignation
Safety sought in whispered words
Comfort found within strong arms
Succumbed to his many charms

Caress of lips upon my skin
Ahh tis not a dream
Yes I sigh with a smile
So satisfied!

Rhonda :)

    Very good love poem Rhonda. I like the lines, “Safety sought in whispered words /
    Comfort found within strong arms”.

  • Thank you so much Dick.
    My husband was my inspiration and has often provided both. I really appreciate you stopping by to leave a comment and more so that you enjoyed the poem.

    The fun of a set word challenge is to see/ read how others assemble their words, I enjoy the tenderness of your poem and moreso that it was in part inspired by your husband…xx

  • I so agree Sandra, I love seeing how diversely these words are being portrayed..I am amazed at the results.
    Im so happy that I was able portray the way my husband makes me feel…he was at work at the time I wrote it and to be honest I was missing him so I wrote him back to me…imagined his presence with me.
    Thank you so much for your wonderful comment, Im so glad you enjoyed my words.
