Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

I touched a dream:

I lay next to you

no other place I rather be.

You hold me in your arms

as I rest my head on your chest.

I can hear your heart beat

and it is music to my ears.

You reach over to kiss me softly

yet with passion,

and it felt like never before.

My fingers trace your face

that's as handsome as can be.

You whisper in my ears

how much you love me,

as if I didn't already know.

So cozy in the arms of love.

Then a chill comes over me

as I awaken to the morning sunrise

I realize,

that I'm alone

and tears fills my eyes.

It felt so real

I felt you, I know I did....

Or maybe it was,

I touched a dream.
