My Lullaby


Though our lips have never met

I have kissed you a million times

For each time that I have slept

I partake of you in my mind


Though absent of your fragrance

You have scented every dream

An aroma of lust and romance

Carried aloft by lurid steam


Though no touch is rendered true

I can feel it in my head

Fingers trace each curve of you

When I am lying in my bed


Though I have not seen those eyes

The cold is warmed by their fire

A longing and want unrealized

When at end of day respire


Though your words never heard

Music of lilt and loving sigh

Echo each and every word

As you sing my lullaby

      Thanks beautiful Jonikins! You are too kind!

      • jonicaggiano says:

        Thank you for the kind comment Brad. I am never to kind when it comes to your work. It is so stunning and rhythmic. I am always trying to get my pieces to fall as close to rhythmic as you achieve but have yet to master that. Being poet of the month at Spillwords NYC is no small achievement. You should feel very proud of what you have accomplished.

        Hope you are having a wonderful week. Sending my love. ❤️Joni

      • Brad Osborne says:

        Your works hold all their own beauty, however rhythmic you may think they are. This is substantiated by all the publishers who have shared your work. Thanks for all your love and support!

        That is very kind of you to say Brad. It means a lot to me. I really admire your talent. Thank you. It is my pleasure to read your work Brad. I wish at times there were more hours in the day. Sending you big warm southern hugs and my love always. ❤️🤗🦋Jonikins
