Profound Dreams Soothe My Soul

Profound Dreams Soothe My Soul

profound dreams

He looked down at me, a question in his eyes,
Standing so close, I wanted to hug him to my heart,
Without him saying a word I knew the answer,
Yes, I can and do, with all my heart and soul,
With every part of my being, for who you are,
For all I see in you,
For all my life and beyond.

Never before have I felt such deep emotion,
Or loved as much as I did right then,
It is a never ending love, it holds me up,
Keeps me strong, for it abides within
The deepest part of my soul,
Where only he has touched.

How can I tell him, when only in dreams,
I see him asking if I love him whole,
And I give the words of my heart,
Does he know within his own heart,
My words are sincere, my love is deep,
It is in his keep, there it abides,
In any storm of life or all our imperfections.

For the gift of love heals wounds,
Makes all perfect in the eyes of beauty,
To love him is a blessed peace within me,
I know it is right that I love him,
Even though I know not the future,
I just live each moment of life’s flow,
For profound dreams soothe my soul.

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 for The 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.

    Love the passion of this piece Phyllis – it is the romance in our hearts that sets the poet aside from all others.
