Your Poem REFLECTION ATA T PESTRY of light upon the wall Weaves images of you upon my mind And with each stitch you rise ' and gently fall 'Til just a veil of you is left behind ' Then once again the blazing embers flare Left gazing at their sparkle now it seems It makes me feel of love lost and despair Rekindled once again it lights my dreams Which tell me love is like a smouldering fire To warm the soul when deeds Warm the soul when deeds T of day are done When in my chair I wearily retire And picture that one day we might be one Yet though I know my dreams Though I know my dreams Y cannot come true The fire within my heart still burns for you Syd Webster
