in the garden of hope

the day ache pear trees  
delicate flavor in the garden  
you saw me there collecting forget me nots  
ethereal beauty with a shy smile  
quietly you watched    
you didn't want to disturb me  
I sang a sad hymn so melodic and lovely...  
it hurt your heart to listen  
but you couldn't turn away  
he loves me, he loves me not I recited  
with a pensive look on my face  
you wanted to hold me then  
I heard your stirrings    
looked up and saw you through the trees  
blushing wildly...    
someone witnessed my innocence  
upon silent feet you approach  
saying malady I didn't mean to frighten you  
I look down still caught in my reverie
whisper I saw you in a dream  
I reach out to touch you  
and then pull away    
afraid of waking from my vision  
tears gently roll down my face  
you take me in your arms    
hush now beautiful, I'm real  
we kiss, I'm in heaven for a moment  
then my eyes open...  
I awaken to find you're gone
