In My Dreams

In My Dreams

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*

I am asleep, but awakened

By a clouded purple haze

Deep within my memories.


Smelling the sweet fragrances

Aromas of beautiful vivid images

Roses and purple lilacs

Overwhelming all my senses

Aligned along a golden path.


A gate awaits for me,

Following an angelic voice

Leading me closer and closer

To my garden secretly guarded

By vines and trees,

And I only hold the key.


My imagination wanders more,

As I search and explore rivers

Of my thoughts watching the kois

And other critters scurrying around

In my world, created by my own mind.


She waits for me, in a glimmered reflection

Sitting atop a boulder, fit for her and me.

We speak of our thoughts and wants

As she describes her heavenly home

That I keep witnessing within my memories

'Neath the moonlit diamond skies.


She smiles in the most loving way

To reassure me that all will be alright

The sun begins to rise and morning arrives

As I am awakened once more,

Missing her smile and her warmth

That I can only have within my dream world.

A beautiful poem. I like the description in the poem. Allow the reader to smell and sense the odors and feel the memories come alive. In good dreams. Our people who loved us will appear. Thank you for the outstanding poem.

This poem sounds so like meditation the finding of a special place where one feels safest and by the way you describe it are you sure it was but only a dream and not something more spiritual, maybe dreams are only doorways to places our hearts long to wander. Love the gentle tenderness of the piece, keep em' coming
