My Song

Gentle trade winds sing your song

Whispering to me where I belong

In the twilight shadows of the moon

Hidden promises hum their tune

Void of heart my lonely chest

A sadly empty space at best

Cemetery of broken dreams

Of leaden tears and muted screams

Eternal hope now buried deep

Still feel your presence in my sleep

Gentle trade winds sing my song

Whispering to you where you belong

    *hugs, Cat

    • FredPeyer

      Thank you so much, Cat! I have been and am very busy and have to 'steal' time to get onto the site. Was looking for your writings, but could not find anything. Will look again!

    • Michael Edwards

      Super work Fred

      • FredPeyer

        Thank you kindly, Michael. Coming from you this means a lot!

      • Abora

        this is lovely stuff, fred.

        I felt so much from so few words.

        • FredPeyer

          And this is a lovely comment! Thanks so much, Abora!

        • LAWLESS

          Diversity, diversity. I don't know how you do it man. A soulful, stunning write!

          "Cemetery of broken dreams". James Dean and Marilyn would've loved this one.


          • FredPeyer

            Thanks Mike! How do I do it? Easy, I sit in front of the keyboard and let my fingers do the talking. And after reading your so very kind comment, mentioning James Dean, I thought that 'Cemetery of broken dreams' probably would have made a nice movie title.

            Wow Fred, another great write on the wind.

            • FredPeyer

              Thanks AP! You are so right, I do like to use the wind metaphor.
