A Dream Within A Dream

0

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow–
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand–
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep–while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Edgar Allan Poe

Bread and Music

0

Music i heard with you was more than music,
And bread i broke with you was more than bread;
Now that i am without you all is desolate,
All that was once beautiful is dead.

Your hands once touched this table and this silver,
And i have seen your fingers hold this glass.
These things do not remember you, beloved,
And yet your touch upon them will not pass.

For it was in my heart you moved among them,
And blessed them with your hands and with your eyes;
And in my heart they will remember always,
They knew you once, O beautiful and wise.

It’s about how it feels

It’s not about whether it’s wrong or right,
It’s about how it feels,
I know we only have tonight,
So embrace me till all my pain heals.

I don’t care to do the right thing
Because I know loving you is wrong,
You said, “this has never been a meaningless fling, the fire that burns in my heart will forever live on.”

Just go back to your wife
The one you don’t even love,
Because I know in this life,
You I can never have.

When the lamplight of the Sun
First touched the dark
And rolling, sighing, seeking wave
First kissed the land
When the first drop of rain
Met the very first leaf
That moment God chose you
And intended you for me
When that tiny living globe
Formed in the dark
And with the rhythm of time and space
First beat your heart
When God knit your limbs
And gave breath to your lungs
Your days he ordained
And intended you for me
All praise to our God
Who created all things
Who gave us life and gave us life again
Who came here this day
To create us anew
To take two hearts and meld them into one
From the moment that my eyes
First saw your face
And when you with an angel’s voice
First spoke my name
When you first took my hand
Heaven’s voice seemed to say
That before earth’s foundation
He intended you for me
