A Dreamer's Prayer


We're on the same wavelength, someday we'll meet,
And misery and loneliness will concede defeat;
To the tower of happiness together we'll climb,
I'm sure the day is coming, it's just a matter of time.

But loneliness creeps in like a thief in the night,
I can't wait anymore, I'm too weak to fight;
I lose all hope and give in to despair,
Then I fall asleep and find him waiting there.

He holds my hand tightly, and I'm lonely no more,
I find myself standing at heaven's door;
His voice is more lovely than the song of a bird,
He speaks to me softly, but I hear every word.

When I look in his eyes I'm thrilled to see
The soul of a man who's devoted to me;
In dreams there are no laws that we must obey,
And our love is absolved of moral decay.

In dreams there are no barriers; like the birds we are free;
But his face shows a sorrow as he turns from me;
Why is he leaving now - I'm standing alone!
No longer is his strong hand holding my own.

I'm losing my love... oh, now I see,
Someone is trying to awaken me;
And my soul is crying, the emptiness is profound,
If I wake now it's all over - please... don't make a sound!

    Hello poet Lora. Another absolutely wonderful poem, holding the reader in suspense all the way through and ending in such a way to allow the dream to continue. Well done, I enjoyed, Loyd (Report) Reply

    So artistically you have woven the tapestry of your dream! Every stanza is a poem by itself and the last one is a piece of gem! I must give it a 10/10.
    'But loneliness creeps in like a thief in the night, ' - Beautifully said.
    'In dreams there are no laws that we must obey,
    And our love is absolved of moral decay.' - These words very well match with those of my poem 'Forbidden Fruit', the last stanza of which I have the pleasure to quote below:
    'My Guru forbade me
    To be in your proximity,
    Even to see you from afar.
    So in my dreams I started
    Seeing you as I wanted,
    With no Guru standing near.' - Shall appreciate if you read and rate the poem and leave a comment. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem. Liked the ending also. I like to dream of things that will never happen in reality,
    they're much more appealing sometimes. Also like to dream of impossibilities
    that can happen. (Report) Reply

    HI Lora just been reading some of your poems and like this the best.
    As poets we tend to be dreamers I know I am.
    Someone once told me to write down my dreams and then write about them, which I have done
    But a Camel eating Custard while driving a Car ain't easy! .
    By the way Pete the Fly is no more he pushed his luck and got whacked! (Report) Reply

Their old familiar carols play,

Of peace on earth, good will to men.
