Am I Dreaming? - Poem by Lora Colon

Tell me again how the flame in your heart
Flares up when before me you kneel
To declare your love in this old-fashioned way,
Am I dreaming, or is this real?

Tell me again how you love me, my dear,
Make my heart and my senses reel!
And I, in my rapture, can only inquire:
Am I dreaming, or is this real?

Tell me again how the rose has no beauty
And its fragrance has no appeal
When compared to me - O, tell me again!
Am I dreaming, or is this real?

Tell me again how my eyes burn brighter
Than any light heaven could reveal;
While envious stars complain of their fate,
Am I dreaming, or is this real?

Tell me again how my love holds you captive -
A prisoner loving the ordeal!
And when you kiss me, it's then that I know
I'm not dreaming..... O, yes, this is real!
