In My Dreams

In My Dreams

You visit me in my dreams 
and I cling to you. 
So vividly real it seems;
together, we two. 

You walk in my dreams with me
and I beg you, 'Stay!'
But you say you can't and leave
as I face the day. 

Wishing to stay in my dreams
I return to sleep,
finding you again, in streams
where time and love meet. 

In my dreams I have you, still 
pleading, 'Please ... don't go!'
Your touch, your smell--seems 
so real. 
O' that it were so!

    This longing or aching can be quite something. I remember it well! Affection and desire is so often not reciprocated.

    Awww, Deborah, a fine write of longing and missing. To use a well-worn cliche, may your dreams be realized. Thank you for sharing this gem. :)
