Ten thousand messages

by cricketjeff on May 19, 2009.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

One hundred times one hundred times I’ll say
That I was born to fall in love with you
I wake to tell the daybreak every day
There’s nothing else that I could want to do

As regular as Big Ben’s solid chimes
I’d hear you sing the answer in my heart
You’ll tell me of your love ten thousand times
That you could not survive a life apart

But then I’ll wake and find reality
I wish that I could live in fantasy

A form sometimes called an English curtal sonnet.
