the dreams I had

the dreams i had

you are the twilight in my eyes
that never blossomed into dawn
the empty nights sans moonlight
imagining the phases of your soul
renouncing the affections of women
to appease this unrequited heart
and all the love it has to give
for you my beloved
I cling to illusions
embracing all the dreams i had
yet never lived

.

.

A song that very much inspires mi. Sabor A Mi (Taste of Me).

I don’t know if eternity has love
But there, just like here
In your mouth you will carry
A taste of me 🎡🎢

  1. Dear Andrew, I did not want to comment before I listened to the song you shared. I love Latino music in general so it was definitely a treat! Your opening two lines owned my eyes… Even though i read your poem it was those lines that were enjoyed the most… Just makes you want to sigh marvel at the power of love returned or not.

    1. Querida, so grateful for your beautiful words.
      I have been working so hard on the opening lines of my poems. So to hear you say this, I am grateful and touched.

      Love is powerful, returned or not.

      Thank you so much. Hope you are doing well.

    1. Yes, that is Eydie Gorme. I have seen made old videos of her. My grandfather
      used to play her records all the time. I believe she was married to a very handsome guy.

  2. Love the song, but not as much as your poem.
    Unrequited love is yet, love.
    Perhaps in some ways, at some particular moments, all love is unrequited.
    Strong and passionate, just like you!

    1. Of course, unrequited love is still a beautiful for of love. You are probably right. The start of all love is most likely unrequited. Never thought of that, but it is true.

      Haha. Thank you for the double compliment. That was beautiful. Grateful and blushing Resa.

      Resa, I commented on a couple of your posts last week. I am certain you replied. I just wanted to let you know I haven’t answered because there are so many comments likes and follows coming it, it is knocking all the messages from different blogs out of my queue. Of course, my dashboard holds the messages for my blog, BUT the messages where bloggers are responding to my comments on their posts is being lost. Thus, I would have to go to ever blog where I commented on over the past seven days and see if my comments were returned. A daunting task. I tell you this because I don’t want you to think I am ignoring you in any way.

      Thank you for your beautiful words. You always find a way to make me happy.

  3. I don’t know Spanish. Wish I did. It is a beautiful, beautiful song. Thanks for sharing. I don’t think one needs language to understand the beauty of music.

    By the way, “renouncing the affections of women
    to appease this unrequited heart” -. πŸ™„

  4. This is heartwarming.😍 It’s seems like you were clinging to her desperately that you wanted not to wake up from a dream of yesterday. Keep loving!πŸ’πŸ˜Š

      1. Great to meet you too! Do you lucid dream as well sometimes?
        My next post will be about my recent dream about wooden doors in a basement corridor. Would love to hear what you think πŸ˜‰
