“For Natalie” by Paul Gallagher


Tonight,
When time meanders past your hour eleven
Your mind snapping pictures of dreams made in heaven.
Allow your soul to vacate your space
And when in the stars above, I will see your face.

For behold! ...on this night my heart has wings
Joyous ascension to where this angel sings.
Those tears you speak of, now tears of joy,
Two souls, hand in hand, together do toy.

Although darkness may invade eyes closed tight
Souls dance and sing throughout the night.
Now morning reveals it’s splendour glory
A spiritual embrace to grace her story.

This heavenly transcendence always within reach
More nights, more journeys, on this beautiful beach.
So dreams for you can come true, fair maiden afar
Open your heart, for there’s a soul out there, your very own star.

Very, very beautiful, Paul. To say "thank you" to a Poet is nothing... It did touch my soul and for that, I am grateful..
I am glad that something of me has inspired you...

Sorry, but I think it's pretty corny. Sorry, I should have remembered, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything. But I always do anyway. Sorry.
