i dream of your touch…

i dream of your touch,
your arms holding mi close
as i hear your heartbeat.

the world stands still
with your every kiss
never have i felt so safe
than at this moment..
when we are wrapped together.

i don’t need things of this world
big cars, house or bank account
just you- always by my side
with your eyes staring back at mi.

but this dream-
its just a dream
for you are miles away

and your touch i am left to get from the wind
your warmth from the sun
your kisses i taste on my lips from the rain.
yet i cling to this dream-
for it is all i have.
so until you get home

and i can hold you & hear your heartbeat
and feel your warmth against mi
i must live in my dreams…
but then fear sets in.

and i wake up
to the alarm clock ringing
and i realize
it was just my imagination
playing tricks on mi.
for you are not here.
you barely know who i am.
and so i cry.
for still i ache,
longing for mi to be all you ever dreamed of
and for you, for someone like you
to make my dreams come true.
