I'M Dreaming Of You - Poem by Robert Rumery

As I sit here and look at the water,
I can see your face in the ripples of water,
as a stone skips a crossed the lake,
and the cold wind blows I can feel you,
I can feel you with me,

your feeling comes over me,
it makes my spine tingle,
and it makes me shudder so violently,
but the feeling is of pleasure and not of pain,
as I sit here on the dock thinking about you,

Chorus: I'm Dreaming Of You,
I wished I could of made you mine,
I'm Dreaming Of You,
I wished I could of made you mine,
I'm Dreaming Of You,

I can see your face as plain as day,
I can feel your hand inside of mine,
your hair brushes up against my face,
I try to open my eyes,
but I can't and when I do,
your gone away from me,

I meet you such along time ago,
just two kids trying to take on the world,
you were a cheerleader at a rival school,
and I was The Penquis outcast,
two people that meet by chance,

I just happened to know a few kids,
on our basketball team,
and they introduced me to you,
to the most beautiful girl I've ever seen,
the most beautiful girl in the whole world,

I couldn't take my eyes off of you,
I couldn't stop smiling when I was around you,
and I knew you had a thing for me right away,
two high schoolers in love,
they called it puppy love,
but I called it destiny,

Chorus: I'm Dreaming Of You,
I wished I could of made you mine,
I'm Dreaming Of You,
I wished I could of made you mine,
I'm Dreaming Of You,

The way that we loved each other,
it was so nice and I wished it not to stop,
not for one single minute,
but we had obstacles in our way,
your self-destructive nature,
and my unwillingness to live,

I thought it was the beginning of the end,
but you told me you'd fight for me,
and that love that we both shared together,
you told it me that it would be alright,
and that all we needed was each other to survive,

You were my love, my desire,
you were my everything,
the only thing that I really wanted in life,
the person that I wanted to be with,
for the rest of my life,
but love and people change,


Chorus: I'm Dreaming Of You,
I wished I could of made you mine,
I'm Dreaming Of You,
I wished I could of made you mine,
I'm Dreaming Of You,

The months had turned to years,
and we are still together but not in love,
I see your loving smiling face from time to time,
but its the same old 'Hey, how you been' the same old,
' I love ya'

so nothing has really changed between us,
since that faithful day so long ago,
when we were teenagers in love,
teenagers wanting to take on the world,
me a silly little poet,
and you the most amazing cheerleader and athlete,
nothing has changed I'm Still Dreaming of you,
and your still egging me on with my songs,
and my poetry,
