My Dreams With You

My dreams with you
Are many and varied
Both while we’re dating
And after we’re married

Spend a day with you
Lying in bed to hug and cuddle
Stay inside love’s warm embrace
The world forgotten in a confused muddle

Explore new and exotic places
Travel and soak in the sights
Never sating our curiosity
Even when they extinguish the city lights

Make entrancing music with you
I bang the drums, you play the guitar
Record and listen to all our songs
Make ourselves feel like superstars

To excite the gustatory sense
Eat at every dhaba and fancy restaurant
Taste everything regardless of ingredient
Walk out with tummy full and faces exuberant

Walk around after midnight
Not caring who we meet
Belt out songs together
Dance in lonely streets

Raise a family with you
Us and two little kids
Come from work to a happy home
Doting husband and father in your midst

Lie on the bed beside you
See your eyes look at me
Be able to watch you sleep peacefully
A lovely sight to see

Watch the night stars with you
Debate and comtemplate philosophy
Tell each other stories under the stars
Weave long reams of fantasy

To cuddle you close
Your happy head on my chest
To wrap my arms around and keep you safe
I dream everyday, I confess

These are only but
A few of what I imagine
The biggest one of them all
You beside me through thick and thin

Come fulfill these and more
Our stories will span reams
Because all I want in life is
To die with memories, not just dreams

Like little old Jack
I climbed the beanstalk
At the notion of failure
My resolve did not balk

I tried to tread lightly
On my veritable dreams
Yet my feet fell through
They tear at the seams

Deep holes open wide
A source of frustration
Yet I cannot stop
To sit in consternation

As hard as I try
I cannot move on
Struggle through nights of despair
No hope flashes in the dawn

My first fearless decision
Has been to no avail
But to destroy my courage
Negative thoughts assail

Must I give up
Go back, slide down?
Anticipate what might have been
In deep regret drown

Must I struggle on
Get up, move forward?
Though I may fall and crash
Like a flightless bird

Decisions, decisions
They are a pain
But I must take one
Lest I go insane

What must I do
Struggle to continue
Find what may come
Or fall and start anew
