Tomorrow’s Dream, A Poem by Monalisa Parida


Poem composed by Monlisa Parida

Lay beside me 

Hold me gently 

Dream with me.

These December firmaments

Reflect in our eyes 

The starry night,  

Making love to you

Just before sunrise. 

Snowflake wishes, 

Mistletoe kisses, 

Warm fire nights,

Caressing soft touches, 

You at my side,

The greatest gift 

In spending time with you. 

Cashmere smooches

Porcelain skin 

Getting lost in your eyes 

Diving deep again. 


You are the yesterday’s promise, 

Today’s hope,

And tomorrow’s dream.
