Is this a dream?

Only a dream could explain the deep blue of the sky, and the softness of the sand.

Only in a dream could the ocean be this clear and the water feel this perfect.

I’ve waited for this moment forever.


Now that it’s here I feel as though all the world is right, and I am complete.

The feeling of your hands on my arms anchors me somehow, without holding me down.

And the silent feelings unspoken need no words to express them.


It can’t be a dream though, can it? In dreams, you don’t know that you are dreaming.

But maybe it is….

The way my hand softly touches your face. The sound of the waves sound as they crash against the beach. The way if feels. The way we breathe. The way we ran, wild and free forever, until we couldn’t run any more.

The way we never want to leave this perfect moment in time. The way I know I’ll never feel like this again.

Evening comes. But the slow change in the sky, seems only to softly fade the colors from the shore. Nothing else changes.

Time is suspended. Life is real. For an eternity, let me stay like this.


If it is a dream, please don’t wake me.

Dreams are all I have of you.

Not anymore I'm not. This was inspired by dreams of the past.<br />
<br />
Now I'm more or less in love with the idea of love....there is nothing quite like love that is yet to come.<br />
<br />
<br /> can tell when you are dreaming? I have only been able to tell once or twice in my whole life. Usually I am blissfully unaware. :)

Cant figure out if this is a happy or sad story... both i guess. But it sounds like you are in love? :)<br />

"In dreams , you don’t know that you are dreaming."<br />
I could argue with this statement :P
