A Dream in the night


Lost in confusion and total self bliss

I’ve found the relation between dream and wish

A dream is a fantasy lived only while asleep

But a wish has a compass vast, far and deep.

A dream can bring true the wish never thought

As your mind wanders aimlessly and feelings are sought.

But a wish is a simple, momentous undertaking

A grasping of things while still in the making.

Now my understanding of wish and of dreams

Have broadened my scope – or so it would seem

But still I’m confused and nothing is clear

Because you are a wish, yet a dream so dear.

With the breath of each day, I wish for your sight

Visions of loveliness turned to dreams in the night

You’ve become such a fantasy with realistic tones

I long for your love and time spent alone

Sadly enough my dreams cause confusion

For all their purpose are meager illusion

And though the dawn of each day may be cheerful to sight

I fear the darkness and my continuing fight.

For now its a war – a battle within

A dreadful nightmare which rationality must win

What should I do? Where shall I begin?

Should I ask for your love or remain a dear friend?

In my dreams you’re my lover and my world is complete

But in life your a martyr to hope so elite

I’ve grown to know you and care with a passion

But fear lies within mutual attraction.

If I am to approach you with some indication

Would I strengthen our friendship or cause detonation?

This is the confusion, the struggle, the fight,

Until I am sure, you’ll remain a dream in the night.
