Finding Love

I wanted a mansion once… that is until I met you,
Now the only place I want to live is inside your heart
I once desired diamonds… until I met you,
Now the only sparkle I need comes from within
I used to crave the finest clothing… until I met you,
Now I want not a single thread to separate our bodies
I once coveted a fancy car… until I met you,
Now I want nothing that would put miles between us
I once prayed for money… until I met you,
Now I want none of the things money can buy
I once yearned for a sense of security… until I met you,
Now my only security comes is knowing you are near
I once dreamt of a prestigious job… until I met you,
Now I find my success in knowing that you are happy
I once asked for the world on a silver platter… until I met you,
Now you are my world and I want for nothing but your touch
Loving you has been my teacher; you taught me not to want
Being with you has been my discovery; you are all that I need
Finding you has been my salvation, I now understand grateful
But perhaps most importantly …
Your love in return has been my everything.

A Dream Within A Dream

635905677386074784-1618317641_dreamTake this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow–
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand–
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep–while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

DREAMTIME LOVE

Some say dreams are what they are
Emotions take both near and far
They say the heart is a burning place
Like love knows many ways

Dreams can hold the truth inside
Hint you what good things you hide
yet dreams are what they are
A truth as eternal as a single star

Yet I found love through my dreams
To me they were true so it seems
Because I believed more than the screams

Dream-time love, love is reality
My sweet one, you are my love to me
I love you, more than as a sweet memory.

You Are My Dream Come True

Always in my heart
you make me feel more loved
than I’ve ever felt
and happier than I’ve ever dreamed.
The love and understanding you have
is something I have searched for
my entire life.
Always in my happiest
and saddest moments,
you are my best friend and confidante.
I come to you for everything,
and you listen to me without judgment.

Always, deep within my soul,
I know we have a love like no other.
What we share is something others
only hope for and dream of,
but few ever experience.
Our love is magical beyond belief.
Always, without hesitation,
you give of yourself completely.
You have reached the very depths of my soul,
bringing out emotions I never knew I had
and unveiling an ability to love
I never thought possible.

Always and forever
you will be my dream come true,
the one I have waited for all these years.
From now until the end of time,
I will love only you.
We will be together always.
