Speak To Me

Speak to me,
Say sweet words
To incite a dream
So big that it blocks
Out the sun, the sky,
The world.

Speak to me,
Say sweet words
Upon which dynasties
Are built, kingdoms forged
And nations rise above
The ashes.

Speak to me,
Say sweet words
And hold me tight,
Snuggling under
Your strong arms,
Breathing in your
Earthy scent.

Speak to me,
Speak to me,
Speak to me.....

Alas,
Your brow is cold,
Your breath is faint,
Your pulse is but a purr.

Don't leave me
In this cruel world
With vagabonds and misfits.

Don't leave me,
Speak to me,
I can not go on,
I just can not go on
Without you.

Speak to me
So I know that
You will be here
When I wake up.

Speak to me.

I love the opening verse. That spoke to me. not a bad piece but it feels like an intermission. so i'm waiting.

This piece reminds me of two old pieces of mine. Perhaps I might share one day.

This lends itself to a reading with quiet earnest.
