My Dreams Are Real--By Robert Hewett Sr.--United States

My Dreams Are Real

My dreams are real, that’s how I feel,
When I awake it is the real deal.
Each night I dream of love so bold,
with the vision that I behold.
When daylight comes I find you here,
I know my dreams have quelled my fear.
You are in my dreams day and night,
with loving eyes and heart just right.
In my dreams I can see you there,
with flowers in your golden hair.
When I come home I find you here
with brand new flowers very near.
My dreams are real each night I sleep.
I never dream that I will weep.
Our hearts are in each other’s thoughts,
never fearing what life has brought.
I love you; I can’t ever be blue,
My dreams are real, you made them true.
