Dreaming By the Moonlight
In the Dreamtime
Another night to sleep and rest
Perchance to dream of what is best;
or maybe WORST to disturb this slumber
A nightmare to place my heart and mind assunder.
A dream, in particular, I still remember in the forefront of my mind
Though retelling may not quite do it kind...
One beach, one crush, myself; in the twilight Summer air
Joined on a date by Summer's eve, and neither of us with many more cares.
A chance for a kiss, even in a blatant dream, this just might
Be my moment to make things right.
A moment passes; a disruption!
Who is this to enter the world with such interruption???
A glance to tell an interloper to take flight,
In return for a chance to make love mine this night.
But, wait, behold; who's THIS here?
An ELEMENTARY schoolmate I once held dear???
More, they keep coming; my mind is thoroughly distracted!
Past friends (who've NEVER AGED) own my attention; and my former affections are redacted.
Teenage me and a teenage cheerleader, interrupted.
By ageless 9-10 year old chums; my dreams disrupted...
Alas, the woes of little old me;
I've lost the girl; even IN my dreams.
