If Only I Could Dream You Back
Author: Terrie*


where have I been?
where do I want to go?
perhaps on a journey untraveled
traveling straight to you

what did I do?
what do I want to do?
to love & live life to the fullest
I'll start it by living it with you

what did I think?
what do I want to think ?
to enrich & absorb every desirable thought
unmentioned and present them to you

what did I feel?
what do I want to feel?
to expose and share feelings unexpressed ,
unfelt and unseen and wrap them all around you

where have I been
where am I going
I'm staying on the road
that leads me only to you

what will I do ?
I'll wrap my loving arms
around you

what will I think?
I will think of moments
that you and I will share

what will I feel?
I will feel my heart singing
w/content to have you at my side

what will I say
I will show
and tell you...

I will start telling you
how much I've grown
to love you

and I will show you
just how much my love
has continued to grow...

what will i feel?
i will feel the love
that once was so real
if only.....
i didn't have to close my eyes
to make it real...
if only....
just once i could...
if only i could dream you back...

I've read this one also on!

I was just telling Clive, that I've read his poetry submitted on! I've read, yours, Clive's, Martin's, Mark's, and many others! All of you have special talents!
I esp. like this poem, "If only I could dream you back". I wish we could all bring the deceased back with our dreams, and prayers.

Soul-stirring poem Terrie!
