Dare the mistletoe

Dreams speak of possibilities, whilst hearts

Speak of the spur of the moment, That sudden

Impulse, that now or never moment, that surge

Of excitement, that fleeting reckless few seconds

That if not acted upon swiftly, may slip away and

The moment be lost forever.


I have lingered and lost love in the process, and

Now looking bck, I can see why fools rush in

Where angels fear to tread; angels are dreamers

And I would far rather be a fool in love than a

Dreamer any day.


Dreams tell of inner desires. Desires that only the

Dreamer can know, and sometimes not even that.

How many times do dreams surprise the dreamer?

'Do I really feel like that'? Yes, as the days pass

That is precisely what the dream secretly revealed.


Love involves risk, and an element of bravery

Too. No time to hold back, no waiting, strike

Now, while the iron is hot, take a chance, invest

All and everything on one kiss, one roll of the

Dice. Dare the mistletoe. Winner takes all.


Go for it, take the plunge, fate rewards ambition.

Close your eyes, kiss again, act entirely without

Thinking, act out of character, blow caution to

The wind, love for love's sake if not your own.

Taste the coffee, lick the spoon, enjoy the ride,

Here comes the moon.


Do not leave love undone, for if you do the lost

Moment will haunt you forever, and you will pay

A high price, if not today then tomorrow, and if

Not tomorrow, then some day soon. Undone love

Does not rest and will deal your heart a mighty

Blow, its gift unquenchable longing, longing for

Times gone by, nights gone by, love gone by,

Never incidentally, to be recovered. Dream if you

Will, better though that you love and keep on

Loving, and for as long as love favours your

Company, Dare the mistletoe.
