Place of Dreams
Place of Dreams
Lying here on my back
Looking at the twinkling stars
My thoughts go to you my love
For I am wanting to be where you are
It’s such a beautiful night
There’s a warm yet cooling breeze
I sense spring is in the air
And winters on the ease
Nary a cloud in the sky
As darkness is swept away
For the moon slowly rises
Heralding the ending of the day
Except for the rustling of the leaves
There is silence all around
The birds have all flown on home
And a sense of peace now abounds
I feel myself slowly relaxing
As my mind starts to wander too
I drift off to that place of dreams
Where I know that I’ll find you
You’ve been waiting for me my love
You knew I’d find my way here
A place where distance no longer keeps us apart
And there is no such thing as fear
For here in this special place
I feel you hold me close again
I surrender myself into your arms
To the sounds of loves sweet refrain
Then the reality of where I am
Slowly enters my subconscious mind
I know that it’s time to say goodbye
To the brief moments of ecstasy that I found
I once again feel the grass beneath me
There is now coolness in the air
I rouse myself to walk inside alone
Knowing that I will not find you there
That is when I look inside of me
Knowing I’ll find you there inside my heart
For though your arms are not here to hold me
Time and distance will not keep us apart.

It is truly wonderful to be able to immerse yourself in sweet fantasies that steal you away to the place of dreams where you can have and do just about anything your heart desires. I understand your apprehension for not wanting to return.

Love may fade in the flesh... but never in the heart
