The Dream That I Hold

To hold you, to soothe you,

To make things right.

To snuggle, to cuddle,

Each and every night.

Dreams that I hold,

So close to my heart.

The dream that one day,

I’ll not have to depart.

To kiss you, to touch you,

Is what I want now.

To stroke, to caress,

To not have to bow.

The dream that I hold,

Almost as tight as I hold you.

The dream that one day,

I’ll not whisper adieu.
