I could die now
with your name upon my lips
curled into the smile you gave me,
a rich and precious gift,
and you inhabiting my mind
like a passionate recluse,
and your face upon every man
in every dream.
I have had a moment of such extreme happiness such as this. Where in that moment everything feels so perfect and complete that you could die at that instant and feel fulfilled. The smile YOU gave ME with this poem was wonderful.
"And your face upon every man/ In every dream" is quite the ending. Those lines really struck me for reasons I can't quite name. The notion of dreams is very strong because dreams are manifestations of our deepest thoughts and emotions, so that could be why those lines are so powerful. I loved how this poem felt like a captured moment. A very vibrant image of lips curled into a smile formed in my mind and it projected such contented joy. Nice write. I enjoyed reading it.
