Love At A Distance

You turn to me to kiss me

And hold me in your arms

Passions burn brightly

We become consumed

Left basking in the glow

Of love in the afternoon

Alas it’s just a fantasy

That someday you’ll be mine

And dreams are all it will ever be

As you kiss your wife

Loving her endlessly

Without a thought for me

The Dance of Dreams

Drifting in and out of dreams

I begin to believe you are in my bed

I can feel your breath on my neck

Your arms embrace me fully

Our heartbeats combine in a tango

As fantasy becomes reality

We move as one

A dance of two lovers

Then just as quickly as you appeared

You disappear and I return to sleeping

Only to awake to your memory

Forever entwined with my heart

As I walked through the woods

I happened upon a mushroom


There I saw the fairies dance

In the sunlight beam

And elves did laugh

From a nearby tree

As birds sang out a tune

That transformed me in time

The wind carried me to a place

Where I had been before

And seen the leaves turn golden

Like Midas had been there

The sky had turned both blue and pink

With rolling puffy clouds

But when I took a step away

It vanished in a flash


Still I wonder if it was even real

Or all just in my mind…
