An Angel in My Dreams

I see you standing in the moonlight 
Across the prairie fields 
A stetson pulled down o'er your eyes 
A thoroughbred at your heels 

A shadow cast upon the ground 
Your silhouette I see 
Standing tall, alert and sure 
You seem to watch for me

I stand in wait, you tip your hat
And into the saddle slide 
As you close the distance in between 
A tear wells in my eye 

You've rode through streams and flatlands 
Crossed o'er the mountains steep 
You kept your word and came for me 
My heart is yours to keep 

We ride off into the moonlight 
Too perfect though, it seems 
It's then I wake and realize 
You're just an angel in my dreams

    Bethany, I've not been very active lately and this poem of yours only serves to remind me how much I have missed your pen and paper creations... You nailed it with this one. I find my heart harboring a little jealousy... It's a great poem.... Love ya... Jake

    I absolutely love your imagery in this piece, and you have many great verses throughout. The only thing you need to change is that when say "ore", in archaic wording, it should be "O'er". Other than that, this is a lovely piece that I enjoyed and am happy that it rhymes. Your rhyme scheme is pretty spot on for me. Kudos!
