Lost in Dreams

I have a dream that flipped in my head,

A dream that is always there and can't be denied,

In the dream the sea is different but I'm exactly the same,

Vivid colors and such amazing skies that took my breath away.

 

With my mind swept away I felt slipping into a reflection,

I stood alone with water covering my face,

Rocks under my feet and water touching my toes,

I felt the warmth of the sun setting under me.

 

I watched the day die as waves tossed at my feet,

Hoping for time to stand still as I become one with the sun

Suddenly I was swept out to sea, carried in a dream,

Sailing in a boat made of memories and rowing in thoughts.

 

I got to where the sky meets the sea,

And right there I knew It was you i was dreaming for,

As my heart gave a leap, I called out your name,

It echoed through the waves so the whole world could hear.

 

Everything was perfect, yet flawed without you,

A dot slowly appeared, growing as I gazed at it,

A boat getting nearer, rowing through my thoughts

And you stepped out, wiped the tear from my eye.

 

Then I woke up and you were gone,

The sea stole you're boat, all remain was my thoughts

But I'll wait for you, always, with a dream in my head,

I'll love you, forever, and on this shoreline, I stand.

 

****

 

A reflection. A sunset. A dream. A poem. Love.

Nothing to add.
