My Dreams Of You - Poem by DAVID TERRY

I lay myself down to sleep again
When all my nightly chores are complete
The dishes done, the pets put away, and the day is free
And there’s no time left in the day to compete
So I lay myself down to sleep again

I turn out the light and am alone in the dark again
When the sounds of the night are soft and low
A melody in the breeze, sung with heartfelt glee
I’ve sent all my prayers up above from here below
So I turn out the light and am alone in the dark again

I rest my head on my pillow and think of her again
When sleep pulls heavily on my eyes here
My last thought of her, with bluest eyes drawing her to me
Thinking night-thoughts of a beautiful heart so dear
When I rest my head on my pillow and think of her again

I fall into dreams where she is waiting for me
Hand in hand we walk through dreams we made together
Through vivid dreamscapes she mends what is real to what could be
And I realize how I could not want another
Because I fall each night into dreams where she is waiting for me
