I Only See You in My Dreams

My Broken Heart

You gave no other choice

but to let you go.


Never will I see your face

except in photographs

of happier times

and when I close my eyes.


Now I only see you

in my dreams

and there all this heartache

has vanished.


You smile at me,

and I fall in love

all over again.


In my slumber,

we build new memories together,

starting where we left off

before the tragic end came.


Then I wake up,

and the reality of your absence

tears me apart.
