When my mind wonders

          This is a poem within a  poem. Read carefully to find two very different poems which combine to form a third.

When I am in doubt

You give me a reason

To linger a while longer

To feel alive again


My mind starts to wonder

When you call my name

I wonder how life would be

My heart skips several beats


To start again,totally free

Locked in complete ecstasy

Discovering the other side of me

I feel a fire that flames


Then I awake to the reality

Still consumed in your warm glow

The darkness slowly descends

How I long for you not to go


Then the Dawn comes too soon

How I wished to dream longer!
