While I Was Sleeping

Asleep in reverie, enrapt in lucid dreams
Myriads of stars chase silver moonbeams
You render kisses on the lids of my eyes
I am being loved by you. In sleep, I sigh.

Drifting with you all through the night
Your arms around me,  we've taken flight
In amorous slumber, your breath at my ear,
Voice barely a whisper, "I love you," I hear.

Comes the morrow, I awaken to the day
Lost is my dream, where I longed to stay
Tonight when the sky turns midnight blue
I'll be drifting in dreams, lost in loving you.

Hi Lin, hope you're well. This is a beautiful poem. It reminds me of moments when you are gently awakened by soft kisses and gentle touches and enjoy a sensual experience when you're half asleep, half dream, half reality.

Hi Lin, another excellent write your heart does paint onto the canvas with its soft words of Love. Your dreams do sing into the readers heart Lin. What memories do flow in the Soul that revive themselves within our dreams. A golden write from a golden pen. This is beauty in a gentle twilight, a song of yesteryear come back to play. Let your heart ever sing Lin. A seven and a fave for this little gem. Hugs....Mike. XX

You always leave the most endearing remarks. Thank you very much, Mike. It took a long time before I could even listen to music again. He wrote songs for me.
