This week's poet is Tonganoxie Mayor Mike Vestal.
If dreams were given to a lonely man,
and if a lonely man's dreams came true.
I'd force myself to sleep all the time,
just so I could dream of being with you ...
If wishes were given to a lonely man
and I was given only two,
I'd wish for you to always love me
and the other I would give to you ...
If my tears could write a love song,
I'd write a love song for you,
It would explain just how I feel inside
and how much I love you too...
But, dreams are only dreams
and wishes seldom come true,
My tears can't write a love song,
but when they fall, they fall for you ...
My Feelings are Real
Sometimes at night, when I look to the sky,
I start thinking of you and then ask myself, why?
Why do I feel these feelings for you? I think and smile,
because I know the list could run on for miles ...
The whisper of your voice, the warmth of your touch,
so many little things that make me care for you so much.
The way you support me, and help with my emotions,
the way that you care and show such devotion ...
The way that your kiss, fills me with desire,
How you hold me with the warmth of a blazing fire.
The way your eyes shine when you look at me,
lost with you forever is where I want to be ...
The way that I feel when you're by my side,
a sense of completion and overwhelming pride.
The dreams that I dream, that all involve you,
the possibilities I see and the things we can do ...
How you finish the puzzle that lies inside my heart,
Deep in my soul, you are the most important part.
I could go on for days, telling you of what I feel,
but you really must know now, for you, my feelings are real ...
