    is marriage a dream?
    waking to her
    she is by me
    why so near and soooooo far?
    is it your experience of the marital life Glen? or is it a general experience of all who got married?
    i am not married so i do not know all these.......... simply fine...... so much in few verses. you brain thinks a lot dear Glen. thank u dear Glen

    as always i appreciate your reading of and commenting on my poems.

    yes, this is from my experience of married life, from times when i had arousing dreams of my wife and woke up in the middle of the night with her so close, feeling her warmth, hearing her slow breathing, but not wanting to wake her.

    all relationships with the people closest to us require patience, yes?

    be blessed!
