Understand What I Mean - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

The wind keeps the air crystal clear - the
antique glass lamp with shiny reflections
the brightness lifts up my heart and
keeps it there

Lying in the sun dreaming, a dream that
carries me through everything, making it
enjoyable to be alive - I told my beloved
of my dream

He said the dream was me; a delightful
reply, I slyly laughed - I did not tell him
everything - too much vanity cannot be
confessed, but

With a dream in my heart life seems
beautiful, without dreams I am dead
inside without power to smile - so
please forgive me

All non-physical powers who can read my
mind, I apologise for dreaming so much
I adore reality as benevolent and loving
and wonderful

I only need dreams to create myself as
I can't find myself anywhere - only in
dreams there is space for me, I do
not exist in life

- Do you understand what I mean?
