Tomorrow
matrinh20

I hope to wake from dreams tomorrow,
 1
wake to all the hope and fear.
 2
I hope that you will still be with me,
 3
I hope that you will still be near.

This is what we missed;
 5
this is what we hadn't seen,
 6
Green as the grass by Lady Bower
 7
blue as the sky should have been.
 8
 
 
Walking through the rainswept streets
 9
by the way we've always gone.
 10
Wishing today could be tomorrow,
 11
going on to Avalon.

Traditional format, unpretentious, so expected to be overlooked by 'enlightened' critics.

Simple, earnest, and as mentioned above, unpretentious.  9-12 are lovely.
