Come awake
You pretty little star
My angel, unaware
Speak to me
In languages of stare

Come alive
You precious little ward
To protect
My sentimental heart
Dream of me
In reoccurring parts

Come away
You unassuming saint
The channels of desire
Be with me
Awaiting by the fire

Come inside
You interwoven soul
In deepening resolve
A paragon of love

It makes the poem multi-dimensional, and a beautiful song, in which I sense some wistfulness and a lot of love!

    Hugs, xx

    In the end I take this as a love poem, but, like Betty, I hear a wistful tone that interacts with the power words in each stanza’s third line: Surrogate, protect, separate, resurrect.
    This is just well done, again.

  6. I find I am am at a loss of words trying to describe the magnitude of this poem. So I shall the same as ever, Well done VW! So very sweet and awesome.
