dreams

when I was younger
I dreamed of things
and many came to pass
while others
remained elusive
more than I deserved
or too much to ask

when older
all my dreams had gone
and then we met
hopes become brighter
than any sun
that ever shone
in you I find
a life I could live
a reason just to be

I want to touch
your fingertips with mine
look into your eyes
and smile
make tingles flow
along your spine
like a mountain stream
but hopes are hopes
and dreams are dreams
I have dreamed you
why won't you come true
