My dream

I had a dream once One that included me rich and happy I laughed about it sure but I had it It actually felt real and inspiring You were my bride in a home of a beautiful pride A pride with two little me and two little you We had our fights, but we loved each other truly We were still planning of where to go but we got delayed So we stayed, We lost that burning desire and we never went Yes, I had a dream once One so hard to forget and it kills me of that I am sure I had people who cared for me, those I cared for I prayed so deeply for a bunce 'twas all too good for a child living in a village And yes out of my dreams I saw you in the village square Wearing like something out of my poor village judgements Feeling wreck-less and high spirited I called your name appraisingly And your giggle said two words that shot me with a sweet swindle My eyes opened and you were not where I thought you to be All that I saw was myself in a hut Surrounded by grasses for a roof on top of mud Of course I had a dream once, when I was fourteen I think of it everyday, now that I am eight-teen I see butterflies all over my nights floating above the stars Your face is glued in my heart through all available chambers It is all of course a dream I had when I was young A story I made myself believe knowing I am wasting my life It was all wonderful when I had you for a wife I have enjoyed it impeccably but I have to wake up I am grown man now, old enough to wear the village crown The sun shines on me with nothing but a smile I have to live in the day now, I am not betraying my child hood To say the truth it really felt good, Maybe one day when I am still poor and lonely, I will return to you.
