Bright union

Long lost, I dreamt. We intertwined
By touch – our sightless souls embraced.
Our twinned jewelled fingers interlaced.
I dreamt of that I could not find.

I made myself your glittering shadow
In ecstasies that intimated
How one day we'd be reunited;
Yet dawn made this, my thought, time's widow.

So next I made a vow: to hope;
To seek our bright reunion out.
Both now may search, and brook no date
To set upon despair – to give up

Sweet dreams. So now, within my soul,
Hope lights the day for our shared mind;
Fear blots the night, for all's unfound.
Long lost, I yearn. My heart stays full.
