Sea Of Heartache

04 Dec


A little boy awakes

In the midnight hour

With memory’s that cross the seas

In dreams he searches

In his mind

He searches for the love

He left behind

Awake yet not sleeping

He searches the recesses

Of his memory

He knows you have the key

To his heart

Yet knows the door

To his love

For you my Darling

Has always been open

The good times

The bad times

We both went through

To reach the final destiny

Our love so true

Memories to carry

Of times I spent

With you

Somehow we lived

Through it all

And our love survived

Memory’s I carry

With dreams yet to unfold

I wish upon every falling star

A way to live

In the land of love

And not just in dreams

If I knew a way

That’s where I would be

In your arms my Darling

Safe with me

Why does love

Have to be so hard

And cause my heart to ache

I Pen my thoughts

With tears in my eyes

My love is so plain

For all to see

How can one person

Love so much

That when pen goes to paper

The ink dries up

And I write with the tears

Of love in my eyes

I hold your hand in dreams

And yet I cry

Little boys tears upon my pillow

I hold on to love

A curse or a blessing

On a little boys heart

Yet still I hold onto love

I hold onto you

Now I sleep my darling

In the land of memories

And dreams

Goodnight for now my love

I will meet you

In my dreams

    Love your land of memories and dreams. So vivid. The image of the open door is an important one for me, too. Best, Monica

    I just love the line Ian where you write with your tears… Such love penned here…such longing and deep love of one who cannot be with his love, but who holds onto his dreams.. Dreams he has known all his life holding his love for ever within the eternal memory of his Dreams.. A beautifully written piece of sheer delight to all those who still hold onto their dreams… Loved it..

    I do get those message replies that you post to me, but I don’t know how to reply to them because I’m not to sure if you would get it or not. Love this one to Ian another one of your best.

    How do you Aussie’s spell it? memories or memory’s because you’ve used both in the above poem. We here in New Zealand spell it memory’s, but I decided everyone else spelled it with the ies. I can’t understand why the Americans took the letter U out of so many words.
    Have a lovely evening
    Big Hugs
    Lady Jude
