Only when I sleep

I wake from my dreams
With the sent of you still in the air
The sound of I love you in my ears
And the feel of your fingers in my hair

Nothing is at it seems
You are only in my head
Everything we share disappears
As soon as I leave my bed

Somehow even though Id rather not
I gather the strength to move
And even though I try my best
My day does not improve

My dreams are all I have got
Im going to have to keep
My head held high until the time
That I can fall asleep

Last verse said it for me. I get times when dreaming is my last stand and first inspiration for a new piece. Hope your daytime reality becomes as sweet as your dreamtime fantasy, really soon.
If ya need a virtual hug, I keep one in my pocket for emergencies.

I Like...
Your style and gentleness in this piece... I can relate to the dreams power in your writing of this piece it's as if you had just woke up and wrote it down...

This was exremely good...

I now have another to add to favorites and will have to read your other postings... I found you by reading comments and your titles seemed compelling...
