Dream Catcher - Poem by Deborah Cromer

See, I knew I was no good without you, here I am alone again
Sitting by the fire lonely, keeping company with paper and pen
Thinking of you, wanting to enjoy your company and incredible smile
Endulging in your awesome body, enjoying kisses for the longest while

To have you in my life would be adding so much of the power needed
My strength from you was grown from love, deeply and carefully seeded
We planted love and it grew so fast, strong, natural and out of control
Rooted into the foundation of my self, taking hold of my soul

Who am I now without you, I feel so lost and completely misplaced
Back to the first day and through it all, our roots have been traced
I end up back to you, no matter what direction I choose to take
Back to your touch, into your eyes and heart, the decision I make

You always, everything is always you, as if you were standing right here
I feel you real close in my soul, holding my heart so lovingly near
No escaping, I cannot run, I cannot hide, I cannot get over this feeling
It engulfs my life, surrounding it traps me, all around from floor to ceiling

You live in me and keep growing stronger, reaching so very deep
Sometimes feelings so alive and real, they wake me from my sleep
I lay there with my heart pounding, out of air from holding my breath
In the dark quiet, I lay there wondering if this lonliness is a form of death

Without you again, you are not there, still through tear filled eyes I look
I remember then I am alone, my heart, my life you left and took
Darkness again, stillness and only one heart beat, I am the only one
That our time of being you and I is long, long over and sadly done

To warm myself and continue to breathe, breathing lonely, lifegiving air
I think of you, of us, remembering our special times, you really did care
We laughed, we loved, we did things and we as a couple got along
Holding on to our memories keeps me alive, smiling makes me strong

Staying alive there is a chance, that somehow, maybe there is a way
That I might again see you, that I would be kissed by your lips someday
This keeps me and holds me close, all I need to go back into sleep
Only my mind knows the moments and memories a heart will keep
