Just One Night Keep Me In Your Heart

Just One Night

Just One Night

 

For just one night keep me in your heart.
Be so kind as to give me the gift of love
I so long to hold and let it be a part
Of my whole being for just one time.

I know you have another path to follow,
Even though our spirits often connect,
It adds beauty to my life and soul,
Yet there are times I so long for your love.

For one night I wish it were mine
That gentle love I sense within you,
As I slumber in dreams so divine,
To awake with the essence of your love.

I can almost feel the touch of your hand,
Your strong shoulder to lay my head on.
For just one night I will dream my dream.
To you I so want to give love, to belong.

I have always liked to write.It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions.

I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles forThe Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles.

Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader.

I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    A very intimate and heart-felt poem of longing for love that is not meant. So richly worded and filled with emotion, a testament to your skills Phyllis. Lovely work.
