For Annabelle

What sleep contains the beauty of a dream
that wears the warmth and comfort of a kiss?
Can anything reveal the thoughts that seem
to hide within the wishes for such bliss?
The dream may be awakened by the touch
of her, within the dream; the dream is real
and she is more than beauty; she is much
the same as what I want, and what I feel
I need to hold her hand within my hand
Her head would be a pillow on my chest
What dream could make the universe expand
to fill the empty thoughts that I’ve expressed?
One dream of beauty, Annabelle, appears
Such sleep dispels all doubts, dispels all fears.
