About the Poem

I wrote this poem based on a real dream I had one night. My someone and I have not seen each other in ages, so I have kept these thoughts of him with me.

A Few Visitor Comments

I loved the poem Sweet Dreams. I liked the way the poem expressed the dream. Also the way the poem flowed with ease. Very realistic to life. although was meant for a dream.
I really loved this poem, it has touched me in a way no other has lately. My boyfriend is currently in Iraq fighting the war and we've been apart for far too long. I do dream of him and it's almost just like this poem. I think it flowed perfectly and had a great word choice, and it's not a cliche love poem. Thank you for sharing.
This poem was AMAZING! it reminds me soo much of my love. and wow. what else can i say besides it's truely AMAZING!
very nice.

Sweet Dreams

Last night as I lay sleeping, love,
A vision came to me.
It was of you and I, my love,
A wondrous sight to see.

And in the dream I had, my love,
I reached and touched your face
I clasped your hand in mine, my love,
And felt your warm embrace.

I pressed my lips to yours, my love,
To taste your kiss so sweet
You held me for a minute, love,
In this moment that did fleet.

I wakened from the dream, my love,
With a thought of you that stayed
With me throughout the day, my love,
And never once did fade.
