Morning Hopes...

In the silent moments
Before sunrise
When dawn faintly
Tints the sky
I awake from my dreams
In quiet anticipation
Hoping the morning light
Will bring your words to me
Still wrapped in the warmth
Of my slumber
I read your gentle words to me
Like rose petals they fall around me
And I feel you are there close to me...
Now and I hope no longer
Do you feel so far away...

There Is A Place...

There is a place
Where I go
When lost in thought
A place of solitude
In quiet repose
Surrounded by flowers
The scent of the meadow
The sun's warm glow
The song of wild grasses
And Nature's boundless flow
A place where just 'being'
Is enough...

Autumn Light...



Soft light falling gently
On flowers so pure
Picked this Autumn morning
So fresh, so demure
Daisies from the garden
It matters not from where
Just a small memento
To guide your thoughts here...

At The End Of The Day...


After all of the troubles of the day 
And there have been many
The daily problems
That just won't go away 
My life in constant turmoil
The beauty of the flowers 
Is not enough to console me
Though I have dreamt it
And I know it could never be
At the end of the day
How lovely it would be
To look to you for comfort 
And find myself wrapped 
In the warmth of your arms tonight...

A Bouquet of Lilies

A bouquet of lilies
So pure, so white
Blossoms for friendship
For love
Rapt in a mist of fragrance
Evoking the essence of Spring...

By Your Side...


Life moves forward
until all hope is lost
Time is stolen, wasted
by the moments we regret
If I could turn back time
I would be right there by your side
Like the first rose of Summer
my petals in full blush...

If Only ...


If only we had met long ago 
If fate had placed us
On the same journey
And our paths had crossed
If we had grown together
Sharing a lifetime
And making memories
Of our own, I wonder 
Where were you all that time ago?
Back then when I was young
When I was a flower blossoming
A bud whose petals were unfolding
My face fresh with the beauty of youth
My life ahead of me, one of promise
To share in true happiness
Then you might look at me now with love
With eyes that still hold those memories
How sad that after our separate lives
And our opposite directions
That our paths should cross now
When it seems too late...
And you only see me now
At the end of my Summer days
When my beauty has faded, gone 
Yet you still see the beauty of me
That is still within . . .
But you will find that is not enough 
Time has taken away so much
And I could not bear to see
The disappointment 
On your face
If we were to meet ...

Poem - Dianne Dawes
For dear C.B.
I have listened again to the beauty of the words of the song, 
I have not turned my back on you.

Veiled Beauty...

Time will not decrease her beauty
Nor the years age or alter
For the sweetness of her face
Shall remain
And the grace with which she stands
Be etched in marble forever
For her loveliness has been captured
In a moment in time
She was once mortal
But she lives no more...
But I wonder, does she have a heart of stone?
Or does it still beat with love and passion
Within her marble facade
Does she long to be freed
From this pedestal on which she stands?
And one day should her true love arrive
Can she break free from her prison of stone
And walk hand in hand by his side...

Finding My Way Back...


I feel sad that I have not been here
For I miss you one and all
Somehow the words escape me
I have lost them along the way
I'm having trouble finding my way back
To the place where my words left off 
I look for the rays of sunshine
Glowing faintly up ahead
If I can just reach out and touch them
Perhaps I will find myself again ...

For a while...



I thought I felt you passing by
You brought happiness into my world
For a while
Perhaps I was dreaming
For I feel your presence wanting now
The warmth of your words
And treasured memories
Will always make me smile…
