Poetry by Jamie McKenzie

In the light of day

In the light of day
you shine
you dazzle
you bewilder

In the light of day
you awaken dreams
inspire poems
and create wishes
that cannot be

And then at night
as darkness falls
you are like the moon
still glowing
but softer
and ever so sweet

As stars fill the night sky
your eyes fill my heart with dreams
that are bold
and intense
dreams that dance for me
like swans
floating across the deep lake
of my soul
