'You'Re A Dream' - Poem by Kelly Seale

You're a dream, that I keep waking up from,
I keep telling myself
You are too good to be true,
You're a dream, that I keep waking up from,
I have to keep pinching myself
To make sure I'm really laying here, next to you.

As I watch you sleep,
It's all I can do to keep
From waking you up with a long, deep kiss,
But not wanting to disturb you, or interrupt
Your dreams, your fantasies, your slumber,
The memories dancing in your head,
A smile upon your face, as you remember.

I think about us, the moments we share are so special,
The intimacy we have, so rare.
You're a dream that I keep waking up from,
And waking up from that dream, is what I'm afraid of
For realities harshness stings my tear-stained face,
I don't want to leave you, or the memory of this place.
Our lazy days, our nights of passion, all to be left behind
I cling to every memory of you, every sight, sound, taste or smell,
Every detail-
Is forever engraved in my mind.

When tomorrow comes
And we act out our separate lives in a play,
I'll know that your heart's with me
As I stumble through the script of the day.
My body's just a shell when we're not together,
That's how it is with soulmates

I'll know that your heart's with me,
No matter what happens, or where we go-
We will always have eachother, forever.
And on that, I promise you. My words burned into my heart, my mind.
And don't you know, as you toss and turn in your slumber,
I lightly kiss your lips-
A present for you to keep,
I close my eyes, and hold you tightly,
For my dreams are calling me back to sleep.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

My favorite stanza makes me smile...

'...When tomorrow comes
And we act out our separate lives in a play,
I'll know that your heart's with me
As I stumble through the script of the day...'
