I dreamed Id someday hold you,
Within these arms of mine.
The paradise Id heard about
Would surely then be mine.

Id look into your dreamy eyes-
And deep within Id see
A look of love beyond my ken,
And all reserved for me.

But dreams fade with the dawning-
Light brings reality.
Its plain to see and understand,
You dont belong to me.

Ill never hold you like Id planned,
No matter how I scheme-
The thought of you within my arms,
Is just a futile dream.

A lonely moon shines in my room,
To wake me with its beams.
I hasten then to hide my head,
And seek you in my dreams.

This is so full of longing and, of course, is beautifully done. I guess we all have our share of those unattainable dreams. This is very lovely, John!

I must tell you, reading this made me cry. So true to life, these words of yours. Thank you, Gunslinger.

Hi Gunslinger,

This is so beautiful because of the love that could be and so sad that it is not of yet, wonderfully done.

Love,  Cerenity
