believing
you await me there
deep within my dreams
i sometimes run and chase the moon

breathless
with arms outstretched

with fingers grasping desperately
with moonbeams  just beyond my reach

racing
to get close enough
to touch you once again
to whisper sweet words of  love

i sometimes run and chase the moon
deep within my dreams
always,  i wake
alone

“Dreamer”   Toni Childs

Songwriters:  Toni Childs,  David Jeffrey Ricketts

Can’t stop, stop the hurting
Can’t stop, stop the  breathing
Can’t stop, stop these tears for you, my dear

Don’t know why  it’s so bad
This life’s been so bad
I’m glad, I finally found you here

You’re the voice of a dream I had
You’re the voice and I’m so glad
You’re the weight of a dream of a life come true

There’s no denying
I  sometimes run and chase the moon
I just can
I sometimes run and chase the  views
And dream of you

My heart locked in absence
My heart locked  and fearful
I see no one can be here today

My thoughts locked in thinking
My thoughts locked believing
I see no one can be here with me

You’re the light of a dream I had
You’re the voice and I’m so glad
You’re the weight of a dream of a life come true

There’s no denying
I  sometimes run and chase the moon
And think of you
I sometimes run and  chase the views
And not of you

I sometimes run and chase the moon
But I’m just dreamin
I sometimes run and chase the views
But I’m still  dreaming

Dreaming, I’m dreaming
Dreaming, I’m dreaming
Dreaming, I’m dreaming

  1. I suppose we all do this at one time or another…

  2. the end is sad to me…always waking alone…and only finding the love in your dreams….

    i hope you have a wonderful week as well dani…

  3. The ending is sad to me too Dani ~

    Have a wonderful week ~

    Thanks for your visits to both my blogs ~

  4. Dani, at least one can look forward to those pleasant dreams. That is truly not a bad thing. A well expressed poem.

  5. The ending made me sad, too – I loved the chasing the moon and looking for the loved one in dreams. But oh that waking alone. Well done, kiddo.

  6. If you ever see *me* running, then you know you are dreaming! (unless STWIASD or Emmylou have been spotted nearby!)

    Got to love Toni Childs.

  7. You wrote it as beautiful as the moon….

  8. Another wonderful post to enjoy, Dani, with image poetry and music. I really enjoyed it!

  9. Light, ethereal feel to the poem; nice, but sad twist at the end

  10. A poem filled with longing…and Toni Childs is so good.

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
