Okay, I’m just going to throw this one out there. This is a poem I wrote when I was dating my husband. He lived a distance away when we were first dating and so I didn’t really see him much, except for weekends.
You know the feeling you have when you’ve just started dating the person, and can’t seem to get them out of your mind? Just call it “young love”.
Anyway, all embarrassment aside, here is a poem titled “If I’m Dreaming”. Written January 9,1982 (wow!).
If I’m Dreaming
If I’m dreaming please don’t wake me
I want this to last forever
and I don’t think that I could ever
bear the thought you’re just a dream.
I keep on thinking, what if someday
as we’re together growing older
someone just taps me on the shoulder
and it all just fades away.
Or we may be kissing on my doorstep
when a voice is heard behind me
and as I turn to look , I’ll find me
back in my room and all alone.
Or you could be lying close beside me
and as you wrap your arms around me
an empty blanket I’ll find surrounds me
when I open up my eyes.
I don’t want to go on thinking
that someday I’ll soon awaken
and find my heart has just been taken
on a never-ending ride.
We have something much too special
to have it last for just one nighttime
a love like ours should last a lifetime
not for just an hours sleep.
So if I find that I’m just dreaming
I’ll pray the Lord to sleep forever
so that I won’t have to ever
be without you by my side. 🙂
Well, there it is. Hope you enjoyed this and maybe somehow relate.:)
