Only in A Dream

Where can one find

their true heart's desire?

In a dream, of course.

It's the only time I

have to muse about my emotions.

Carefully I search for

the sentiments that hide,

considering their meaning.

There is no one to lie to,

all reasons are valid.

Then I discover

the one I truly love.

From there, my wishes

take flight.

Dancing under the moonlight

or strolling by the beach,

my heart beats faster

as your brilliant eyes

fall upon my frail soul.

Even though it is only a dream,

at least there I can say you are mine.

In the mortal realm

I cannot admit my love, yet

a secret confession

I'll whisper to you, but

only in a dream.
