Like a Dream

Like a Dream

Like a dream
Too good to believe in…
A tale
too long to tell
I preserve forever these memories
your smiles…your eyes …
And oh! The warmth of your embrace.

Like a gift
too precious to lose…
An amulet
too sacred to scorn
I adore eternally these things
your words… your laughter
And oh! The fire of your kisses!

Like a tattoo
too deep to fade…
A fire
too fierce to quench
I hover around seeking
your face…your love
and oh! The joy of you with me again!
