“Still Holding You”

I just may be crazy, I may be deranged-
As my mind wanders back, sometimes memories change
They are so realistic, too bad they aren’t true..
In them I am happy, and still holding you.

Still holding you, as we walk arm in arm-
Still holding you, hypnotized by your charms...
The band is still playing some song of romance-
I’m still holding you in my arms as we dance.

In my mind you still love me, Those words were not said-
We never discovered, our affections were dead...
And we never said, the final, “We’re through”!
If I’m dreaming, don’t wake me. I’m still holding you.

Gunslinger, this is a departure from your usual writing.  Well done!
Looking forward to the next "tales of the ole west" saga from you.

Saddening story, Gunslinger, wonderfully told.

Sometimes dreams are so much more wonderful than reality. This is heartbreaking!!
