In My Dream - Poem by Ashley Goncalves

My love I am submerged in this fairytale of you
The words are left unspoken but still they are true
Although my hopes are as fleeting with might as a steed
My dreams shall not vanquish for what I dearly need

You alone are the reason that my heart still beats
And you are the very reason that my lungs do breathe
And this blood that I have and these breaths that I take
lie in me dormant when I am not awake

You are the shelter and fortress that I may call home
You remain the only shelter that I have ever known
The roof that stays above me and guards me from rain
The medicine that seeps into me and conquers my pain

My dear, you are the mountain that reigns above the sea
And as the waters crash upon you, you remain there for me
You are the knight that arrives when I'm running out of time
When the clock strikes the second that steepens the climb

Oh love please hear my words and take them to heart
Although my voice is small my soul is tearing apart
You love me so dearly and you love me complete
The gaze that you give me sweeps me from my feet

The flowers on the ground and the stars in the sky
Do not compare to our bond that so many deny
But I say to shut out their lies and heed not what the say
But understand that we are blessed and stronghere today

So as I walk down this aisle in a bright glowing white
I remain in my sleep in this bed in dark night
The white dress and mighty church are all but just a dream
But when I reach the surface, it's far more real than it seems
