If Only - Poem by Ashley Morris

When I dream, I dream of falling
Falling, Falling
Falling onto you
When I dream, I dream of drowning
Drowning, Drowning
Longing for the shore, to breathe again
Breathing the air which is your essence
When I dream, I dream of burning
Burning, Burning
Burning bright, burning strong
Longing for the water too put out the flame
When I dream, I dream of darkness
Darkness, Darkness
The darkness devours me
Waiting for the light, for the candle, which you hold
When I dream, I dream of rain pouring
Pouring, Pouring
Drenching me with its coldness
Feeling the blanket that you lay across me to give me warmth
When I dream, I dream of you
Saving me from all my fears
When I dream, I dream of a heaven
Where you and I can lay underneath sky
And where you'll always be with me
When I dream, I dream of forever
When I dream, I wish it lasted
When I dream, you never leave
When I dream, my heart does not get deceived
If only the dreams I dream would come true
