Without Dreaming

I'm on my world, you are on your world. How can we meet if we're apart? Even if I stretch my arms I could never reach your hand. I could see your face. I could hear your voice. I could only be with you in my dream. I want to be with you, to be my hope, to be my strength and to be my friend. When shall I see your face? When shall I hear your voice? When shall I be with you without dreaming?

Wow, deeply expressed piece of beauty, Doris. Amazing honesty of that distance, that one wished to get rid of, in hopes of getting closer to that special one. Enjoyable piece overall. Check out some of my poems, might find some you like. Peace.

I can relate to loss too. You wish your loved one was still alive and you see or remember them in dreams but when you wake up you remember they are not there. Awesome poem!

DORIS, Stopping by with a nice, sweet Welcome to Poetry Soup. I will get much delight, in reading and in time become familiar with your verse. As for now, I will greet you with the same smile, others passed, when I first join the soup 4 years ago. I wish you the best when it comes to your compositions. I hope you get to meet all the nice poets around here. Starting with me. SKAT :-) Please drop a hello and tell me a little about yourself if you wish. I would like to be your newest poetry soup "FRIEND" Hugs* SKAT

Welcome to Poetry Soup. Very nice first piece. I wrote a sonnet, with a similar theme to your ending, called Odsessey; you might like it. Thanks for commenting on Something Left Behind.

I totally can relate to this, Doris. It brings back so many lessons-filled memories that still hurt but changed me for the better. Powerful first post on the soup. I can't wait for your next one. Thanks for dropping by my page! :)

I understand this poem. It takes some patience. A LOT of patience and also some action on both parts, but if it's meant to be it will, good luck and great work.

patience is one of the things that is difficult to have but its fruit is sweet.
