The man in my dreams
I try to live and reach every night, just to see you one more time
I dream of you most of the nights, it’s all I have since you are gone
Your face is still the same from the last time I saw you
I wonder if you are trying to tell me something
Especially those nights that you appear and say nothing.
Before I sleep I have you in my prayer; yearning for a chance to see you
I close my eyes to visualize your face, your seductive smile
You were so handsome, amazingly wonderful,
As I say my prayers and lie down, I know I’ll see you in my dreams.
I gaze at the dimly lit screen, the trail of thoughts continues
I’m nodding off, signing out of reality; the world goes hazy in a second
I emerge on the other side of the world, where I get to see you every often
It feels so real, but I’m going to wake up in the end and return to my colorless life.
Some nights I can barely make out your features, but I know it’s you
Other nights I see your smiling face; for a moment everything seems like it used to be
The scent of your hair, the colour of your eyes; you smile as I run my fingers through your hair
For in my dreams there you are, but in the morning, you snooze away.
I think of you often, the sounds of quiet calm my mind soothingly
I recall the scenes of my dreams, the cuddling, the smiles, the flirting….
I can hear your voice; deep, soft, and slow in my head
I hope you’ll keep visiting me, as you lay dead on earth.
