Last night as I lay sleeping, love,
A vision came to me.
It was of you and I, my love,
A wondrous sight to see.

And in the dream I had, my love,
I reached and touched your face
I clasped you hand in mine, my love,
And felt your warm embrace.

I pressed my lips to yours, my love,
To taste your kiss so sweet
You held me for a minute, love,
In this moment that did fleet.

I wakened from the dream, my love,
With a thought of you that stayed
With me throughout the day, my love,
And never once did fade.

Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Thanks, Elizabeth! What do you mean, I stole your name? I was here first!

Ha ha. Thanks again.

Fishing was great, Denise. I caught a couple nice ones, but of course you should have seen the one that got away.

FYI everyone, I just wanted to say this was based on a dream I really had-very, very sweet!

Lucky dreamer! This is very well done - like the use of the word 'fleet'.

Will the 'real' Elizabeth please stand up!

Elizabeth - This had to be a LOVELY dream.
And I love fishing too.

Twin Elizabeth's, how swell.
I am sure we'll be able to tell
them apart by the words in their heart.
But, now that I think about it,
seems to me ...
they BOTH have hearts
as big as can be.

Well, whatever.
I can tell ...
double Elizabeth's
are really swell !

I AM the real Elizabeth! Really I am! See, I was here first, look on my profile and see that I was registered when these forums opened back in June!

Hehe~well, Elizabeth Santos has her last name on, so that's how we'll be able to tell.

Oh, and before I forget, thank you for your kindness, Marge. It is nice to have you here at Passions. Recently, I returned from a three week hiatus to find many new members and poems to read (what a pleasant surprise!) and you are among them, along with my "twin" Elizabeth. So welcome to you both! Thanks again Marge!
