Only a Dream

Only In a Dream

She only loves me
when she talks in her sleep

And I say
you talk in your sleep

And she says
no I don’t and
you snore.

She said
you talk in your sleep

And I said
what did I say

She says
you said
will you marry me

and I said
don’t worry
it’s only a dream

  1. Oh, I love this so much, so intimate and close feeling and what a beautiful dream…
    Also, what a beautiful poem to read first thing in the morning, I think it might be a good day.

    1. Thanks very much. I wasn’t certain how much a banter would work. Ultimately it is so sad I think because dreams never come true or do they?
