    I Dream Another Tomorrow


    In the pouring rain,
    by an abandoned railway station:
    how poignant the memory
    of that mournful whistle
    from the train that took you away
    that misty autumn morning.
    Despite the storm's icy touch,
    I feel your fire,
    I see your light in the night;
    my memories flow
    as drift wood upon a river,
    each a unique image of our time,
    whose destination is
    a sea of forgiveness, just beyond my sight.
    The storm dissipates
    to release flashes of brilliant colours
    through dancing clouds.
    Another lonely day sails away
    with the setting sun
    and in it’s wake I dream
    a new tomorrow
    bathing in fountains of sweet love,
    healing wounds given heedlessly
    in the rash anger and unbending pride
    of youth's untested time...

    Absolutely beautiful!

    This was just beautiful, love the imagery and the way you seem to always blend the aspects of nature into all of your poems.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Blessings on Ya House!

    This was very beautifully scripted conjuring up images of pain forgiveness and matured resolution.

    "...another lonely day sails away with the setting sun

    Read this poem was like watching a love story at the theatre of life. I love the entire poem, but this stood out to me

    Despite the storm's icy touch,
    I feel your fire,
    I see your light in the night;
    my memories flow
    as drift wood upon a river,
    each a unique image of our time,
    whose destination is
    a sea of forgiveness, just beyond my sight.

    Your sis in poetry...Joyce
