I Dream a Love

I dream a love

so complete

every obstacle

it could defeat

Family came in the way

Friends caused it to fray

Race played interference

Religion wasn’t in adherence

Age became a bar

Money has kept it afar

Battles have been fought

still it all ended in naught

I dream a love

so complete

shouting from rooftops

nothing discreet

Society has punched hard

that’s not what catches me off guard

Obstacles I refuse to embrace

but what am I to do with

Ego and agendas rubbed in the face

Fears and judgments wrapped in lace

I dream a love

so complete

all the senses

stay replete

All it takes is a glance

to start a blaze

A compassionate word

Oh dear, am caught in a daze

Then there is the touch

can never get too much

The parting is always in haste

but you’ve left your smell

and even your taste

What always leaves me reeling

how could we have killed the beautiful feeling

I dream a love

so complete

can’t tell

my head from my feet
