Awakenings

The faded memory of fragments of a dream
that slipped away in the honesty of morning light,
the colour of promises scented with peonies
aching to hold on to their petals
and feel the sunshine once more, and
the way the light in Your eyes pushes
the greyness of the day away as Your smile
spreads warmth through my body
and I, I begin to bloom.
