There is a place she found
Full of sleepless nights
Wasted dreams and words
Where butterflies abound
She remembered a night
When whispers
And warm breath
Lips placed so gently upon her neck
So many unspoken words
Between distance and love
Time is just a smile away
Why do you want to hide away
There is nothing more than all
No more I can give
I painted the sky with rainbows
In a raindrop sunshine kind of way
I talked about the giants
A scarecrow who stood alone
The silence just before a nightingale sings
A shadow so far away from home
My whispers were carried on a lyrical air
In a sublime kind of rhyme
The keeper is always sleeping
And time is just a smile away.

I cant believe I've read this poem 9 times and have never left a comment.  my favorite line..."the silence just before a nightingale sings" also speaks of love's longing.  this piece automatically puts the reader in a mood...I love reading it again and again...

This is a beautiful poem your words surely touch the heart. So very descriptive yet vague. Loved this read.

Truly written by a man in love. A more romantic poem could not be found.


There is nothing more than all

No more I can give


Precious write John.

I am in awe of how words can bridge any distance. The air is much sweeter with your lyrics upon them...I really feel them. Beautiful whispers..sublime enough to wake a heart. =))

Hi John I confess I did not fully understand this poem. Its seems to be about long distance love but who is the keeper?

My whispers were carried on a lyrical air

In a sublime kind of rhyme

The keeper is always sleeping

And time is just a smile away.

  You  will know when ,,, smile away... Love it!!... Your heart is reaching out!!

Romantic and wonderful imagery John.....I like this line...."whispers were carried on a lyrical air"

Amazing. I cannot put my finger on what exactly haunted my unconscious about this poem, but this is the perfect example of therapy of words...well done.
