The title for this poem comes from the title of Marianne Williamson’s second chapter of Enchanted Love. A quick read of that chapter will provide an insight to this poem. If a space captain of either gender, as applicable, were to present you with the once in a life opportunity to experience an authentic love, but that there was little time to spare; it is now or never… would you go? My poem is an entreaty to…
Of Space Captains and Angels
From a woman to a lovely man,
Zeus would never have faulted thee…
Reeling from the thought of a far flung
Atoll, thou would dare to follow the sun,
Appear to be far in thought and seeking.
Perchance what thou so desire thou hast.
No further than this shore, so close yet far.
Inclement is thy refusal to see this.
Come with me to the ocean’s edge, take
A walk with me and I’ll show thee what
Is at hand… swim the sky and fly with me
In mind and spirit. Will thou dare to
See the dream through? Share the reverie…
No words but a song of life and love
Come hither to the mountain’s top and
Run by my side. Share in the bliss
Open thy heart as I lay mine for thee.
Imagine the warmth of the sun and
Dance with me the dance of life
All the days that are left us today.
Regal rivers, oceans wide o’ come…
Earth is our playground let’s discover
The joys and the sadness together.
Hold my hand as I would hold thy heart
Eat with me our daily meals and breathe
Ever and ever of my breath and love.
Take to the wind with me and walk
On to deserts and forests and shores;
Long for the friendship, long for safety.
Oh won’t thou share with me this?
Vow to be brave; the kiss of time
Endows me with the audacity to dream.
Memories of lost loves spur me to tell of
Efforts where Hope will never fade.
