Love in my dreams

by: Monika Arnett

Closing my eyes against reality
I smile, knowing the contents of my heart
are safe and arranged in perfect order

Scent of a special flower among all the others
in an open, sun lit field, awakens my heart;
like a lovers silhouette dancing in the winds.

My eyes slowly open to a love in my dreams
as I reach toward the heavens with my hands
waiting for you to float into my arms.
