To Dream of You
I tell myself to dream of you
Every night before I sleep.
Our time together is too short.
More memories I want – to keep.
But dreams don’t seem to obey me,
And I haven’t yet seen your face.
The dreams I’ve seen until now
Could never quite take your place.
I spend all of my waking hours
Just daydreaming solely of you –
Of our lengthy conversations –
Of the things we two could do…
One day my dream of dreaming
About you will finally come.
To my constant and nagging pleas
My dreams will finally succumb.
