About the Poem
This poem was inspired by a picture of the sun setting over the Pacific ocean as a very special person shared this moment with me. I loved her then, I love her still, but as with the sunset, the moment faded all too fast.
Touching A Dream
|by Michael Anderson|
|A moment caught in time with you,
One of just a precious few.
Across the sea, the setting sun -
Slipping unto oblivion.
Coming to us in gold array,
Atop the waves reflection rolled away.
Across the horizon in grand display,
We watched it softly sink to yesterday.
Still in my arms I held you tight,
As the fire-filled sky gave way to night.
I gently kissed your lips, sweet and tender,
Caught up in the night's magic and splendor.
You were an angel in my eyes,
Fallen to me from the skies.
Looking in your eyes, lost in the gleam,
I felt like a man touching a dream.
You fulfilled every desire and need,
With a touch that made my soul bleed.
Oh, how I loved holding you close to me,
But to hold your love I had to set you free.
Still each day the sun sets 'fore my eyes,
In brilliant colors, painting the skies.
But it never quite holds the same flare -
Only an old photograph could share.
A memory I hold close to my heart,
Where you'll always hold the biggest part.
Even as the same sun rolls in tomorrow,
And I find my life's been lost in sorrow.
I won't forget the love you shared with me,
Or the face I may never again see.
Caught in a moment life and love enseam,
I was a man touching a dream.
