Why wait for the mystery of twilight
The sandman left his stardust
A footprint leads the way
A single tread of hope
On this a golden day.
All that glisters is not gold
A distant memory
From the old
A word remembered
From the past
The past becomes the present
That passed
But I see a rainbow
A bridge to your heart
I slip and slide and glide
But the keeper is still sleeping
The keeper of your heart.

This is romantic poetry at its best.

You have a flair for this John. I can see a whole book full

of these poems of yours. Ever thought about it?

A bridge to your heart

I slip and slide and glide

But the keeper is still sleeping

The keeper of your heart.... This is the heart beat of this poem...Beautiful written...

"The past becomes the present, that passed" I like the way that looks and reads. Nice one John.

I'm tempted to call you JC but I don't want you trying to walk on water just yet. *laughs*


I think the "keeper" just got a wake up call with this poem. Lovely work John.

The heart is mysterious.  It feels the way it feels, without permission. 
I like this, the short lines makes it very intense.
