let the river flow

 

if i had one dream to live.

what would it be?

i would want to hold you in my arms

and take your hand and soar to the clouds

and fly to the stars and sing with them.

stairways lead to the heavens.

tears fall from my eyes

so let the river flow.

 

i think of the past

to the day i first met you.

i was such a dreamer then.

 

if i could walk on the fire

would i make it thru the flames.

 

in my dreams you are so beautiful

but i am so lonely

since you said i love you.

to bad things did not work out.

 

the tears fell from my eyes many nights

the storms seem to never end.

what am i to do?

lovers can grow apart sometimes.

 

so i pray to sophia

and ask her to stop my bleeding heart.

so many nights i had haunting memories

of you.

 

so many nights i wished i could tell you

i am a seer of god.

but how of course many doubted my spiritualality.

 

so much i wanted to hold you close to me

and hide the bitter sweet tears.

would you look at me differently

if i am only half the man

i seem to be to you.

 

if i could sail on a lake

i would ask you to sail with me.

oh how much fun that would be.

 

the day you die is a day

im not looking forward to.

you will start a new journey then.

 

i wish i could dream about you

but god has spoken to me instead.

i dream about you

but you are so distant

like a heart that has had

its last beat an lungs

that has taken its last breath.

 

i pray for you

to find your way back to me.

we were lovers once

so why can't we be lovers again.

Hi Victor,

 

 

You're on a roll! Wonderful to see you in this inspired form! This poem pours out from your heart - mingling memories of happier

intimate moments, with the pain of loss and ending on a note of longing for a reunion.

"i wish i could dream about you

but god has spoken to me instead.

i dream about you

but you are so distant

like a heart that has had

I like how you weave reference to Sophia here. It elevates the longing from just a physical plane to a more deeper union.

 

"i pray to sophia

and ask her to stop my bleeding heart.

so many nights i had haunting memories

of you.

 

so many nights i wished i could tell you

i am a seer of god.

but how of course many doubted my spiritualality"

 

 

Thank you for a beautiful read.

My dear Victor. this poem made me cry. How wonderful you expressed all your feelings. This poem hits with its own beauty and emotionality.

 

I love those parts a lot:

 

I would want to hold you in my arms

and take your hand and soar to the clouds

and fly to the stars and sing with them.

stairways lead to the heavens.

tears fall from my eyes

so let the river flow.

 

This part touched my heart too:

the tears fell from my eyes many nights

the storms seem to never end.

what am i to do?

lovers can grow apart sometimes.

 

as GL noticed , and I agree with him. the reference for Sophia flows very well and you pointed out wonderful expression:

 

so i pray to Sophia

and ask her to stop my bleeding heart.

 

and I lot's of others amazing imageries my friend. I love this poem. And Victor I am happy to see you out from your writer's block, it is good to see our romantic poet

 

Vic thank you for posting and keep writing.

I like the brutal honesty exhibited in these lines:

i think of the past

to the day i first met you.

i was such a dreamer then ...

 

in my dreams you are so beautiful

but i am so lonely

since you said i love you.

to bad things did not work out ...

 

we were lovers once

so why can't we be lovers again ...

Therein exists an effective mix of sophistication and naivety, and it moves me.
