About the Poem
I recently shared the most wonderful weekend of my life with an old friend. Even though we passed the boundaries of strictly friendship, we found something in each other that was never expected. Now that the weekend is over, all that is left for me to do is to dream . . .
When I Sleep
|by Tanya W.|
|When darkness awakens, my body settles gently into bed.
The events of my day race rapidly in my thoughts as I close my eyes.
Slowly, I am lulled into a peaceful sleep.
I hear vibrant music - so full of passion.
I feel the warmth of the sun’s rays that grace my presence.
I see kind, adoring eyes gazing back into mine.
The air is full happiness - so much laughter.
Soft caresses are exchanged.
At this moment, life could not be any more wonderful.
I have never felt so beautiful; as I do when I am with you.
I have finally found the respect and acceptance that I have yearned for.
I eagerly listen to inspirational dreams and goals
and know that I want to be the one to be there
when they are complete.
A thin line of love and friendship is crossed,
and two single souls find a home to share eternity.
Birds begin to proudly serenade the morning dawn.
Lonesome roads slowly progress into distinguished passageways.
Light peeps through my windows and I awaken to a new day.
I am ready to endure what the day has in store for me,
because I know that I am a queen,
and I know extraordinary love when I sleep.
