The Bridges Of Madison County

It looks like a beautiful evening,
It looks like a beautiful next day;
I'll becoming tomorrow,
And discuss love if I may.

I got songs of everything in my heart,
I got a taste of roses in my mouth;

Dreams, I have been dreaming of...
Won’t be too long,
I will meet you,
Where we planned to go.

Doesn’t matter what everybody says,
I got something to do;
I'm going to buy myself a new dress,
To be in love with you.

It must be some kind of magic,
The way you were;
Your eyes or something,
Just that I had you here.

We were so in love, it almost felt like a song;
But we both knew it then, you had to move along.

Motherly love, affections and the myth of a fleeting dream.... so beautifully expressed. The rhyme, rhythm and meter almost perfect.
A very heartfelt and expressive piece evoking the internal reception of love in an evocative way.
A heart whence warm affections flow, Creator, thou hast given to me, And am I only thus to know How sweet the joys of love would be? A sweet poem full of joy and warmth of love. Enjoyed reading it.
There is a wide difference between dream and reality. Loved the poem for its flow and concept.
we all dream of things of what we desire and then wake up to the reality of life's quagmire? ....a beautifully written poem.
