This post is the third post from my Flashback Friday series! Flashback Friday is a series in which I share with a you a post from my blog archives every Friday!

I’ve been blogging since 27th April 2007 so I think it’s fair to say I have A LOT of posts in my archives. I moved from Blogger to WordPress in 2013 and for now, for convenience, I’m going to be sharing posts from my WordPress archives, but eventually I will go through my old hard drives and pull out all of the Blogger archives too!

The post that I’m going to be re-sharing with you all today is a post that I originally published on January 24th 2013.

The post was called ‘Our Last Night – Poem.’

To date the original version of this post has 110,000 views!

From this point onwards it will be the original version of this post, the only modifications I have made have been to the tags and the fact I have also added a photo!


Do you ever have those dreams where everything seems so real? 

I have dreams like that a lot, sometimes they turn into nightmares, nightmares that are so vivid that they inspire me to write poetry about them. 

Here’s a poem I wrote called 

Our Last Night 

The soft lingering touch of his lips on mine
The moon and the stars up above brightly shine
The gentle caress as he holds me so near 
Two hearts beating as one is all that I hear
Passion filled eyes staring deeply at me
But my eyes grow so dark I can hardly see
I pray for one last chance to see him clearly
Look in his eyes and tell him I love him dearly
But this is it I’m starting to slip away 
I hear his voice saying no don’t go please stay
The moon and the stars are glowing brighter
I feel myself getting lighter and lighter 
My body moves with the rhythm of his tears
Whispers of I love you barely reaching my ears.
And then suddenly I had departed all life was gone
But his world keeps on spinning and his life goes on
I’ll be there every step of his way, there by his side
In his heart, mind and soul forever I will reside.

I still have nightmares like this and I still write poetry about them, writing poetry about my dreams is an interesting way for me to analyse my dreams and sort of check in with myself and see where I’m at mentally too!
