I Found Love


I dreamt tonight the strangest dream
A visit I had to youthful shores.
I dreamt of a lady in my dream
Of whom most I dreamt
In those past teenage years.
In my dream I sojourned
Once again upon the land of my favourite dream
This city had not much change
Since last I saw it.
The sublime street that constantly shifts
The flowered gardens that blossom always
And upon these street I once again walked.
As I toured the streets of my dream town
I walked to the place where I last saw her
And yes my her sit still to wait like she said she would
Suddenly it felt like yesterday,
All those dream years I never went there
She looked up with a smile
And she was the same young beauty of my teenage dream.
When last did I anchor upon these shores?
I had hide it in the shelve of maturity
And forgot that I kept it there.
I had forgotten what it felt like to dream of love
And wake up the morning after with a teeming happiness.
As we talked and walked in the dream town
All I had forgotten she showed me
And an amazing butterfly filled my stomach
And as the time came near that I leave
I wondered in my heart if I would ever be here again
But I know within I hope
She would wait for me again
That her beauty would not age.
Hmmmm! !
And here I am awake
I sstill feel the butterfly in my stomach
I miss how it feels like when you dream about love.
