heart of my dreams

sitting here in silence
staring into night
sweet smile upon my lips
my heart is running wild

I close my eyes
and let my mind
replay my heart's desires,
visions of a trembling kiss
tender touch and warm caress

imaginary lovers
deep within my dreams,
swirling bits of memories
rapt phantoms in the mysts

feeling lovestruck stupidity
dreaming what can never be
just a fleeting fantasy
heart of my dreams

although I must love you from afar, you're forever close to my heart
