The Dreamer and the Doer; Will the Twain Ever Meet ?

You're the doer, I am the dreamer...
I keep dreaming away, while you keep doing away with those very dreams.
You tend towards practicality and I just hang onto intangible hope.
I conjure up a world with no barriers, where nothing is insurmountable, and anything is possible, if you will it to.
In your practical world there are barriers, those that tell you it's not all that straightforward or simple; barriers that stand in your way.
But do you really see those barriers, are they really there ?
Or are we both just the same, differing only in our levels of assumed optimism ?
And then comes the inevitable question, looming over our heads, as I dream on and you continue to do what you've gotta do........
Will the twain ever meet ?
Will time make it happen ?
Who can tell ?
After all I am the dreamer. I visualise time.
I drift between the present and the future that I have envisioned for us.
My hopes and dreams give me all the assurance I need.
My only worry is, can your sense of astute pragmatism afford you the same ?

Waiting still...................................

I waited and watched as the sun went down
In the distance, beyond the horizon, as it immersed its golden crown
I waited with hope held close to my heart
I waited for you to come back, to never depart.
This time I believed you would surely show up
Discounting all the other times you had stood me up
But alas, how vain is trust that never learns
How foolish is my love for you that despite me, will eternally burn?

If I could make you see
How beautiful you are to me
Would you be mine, for all eternity?

If I could make you feel
And realize my love for you is real
Would that seal our deal?

If I could make you sing
Make you shout out in joy and give you wings
Would you fly over to me ?

If I can make you smile
I’d consider it worth my while
If I can make you blush
Just maybe a momentary rush
It’d be enough to make me gush
And be proud of myself and say..
Finally I’ve made my own day!

Not Your LoveFool

I gave you my heart, my soul, my all
And stood by you, unflinching and tall
While you made up your mind, only to change it again
It never once occurred to me, that maybe for you, love was just a game.

To think that all I sought was your love in return
Only to find myself being left to rot and burn.
But I braced myself through every emotional squall
And when the time came, I willingly took the fall................
All the while not caring about how much I hurt inside,
Knowing only too well that I was just another muse to you,
That you’d soon leave my side.

Although everyone around me could clearly see
The truth of what you were doing to me
I turned a blind eye, I kept the faith going strong
Telling myself that this can never go wrong.

And finally when you turned your back on me,
Choosing to walk away (with someone else)...
Did you seriously believe that I would stay...
Keep waiting for you, forever and a day..?

Sure, I gave you all the time and space you needed,
And through it all, I kept my cool..
But that's not to say, I'm your lovefool !
That's not to say I'm your lovefool...
No, I am Not Your Lovefool ……………...!

Can't Keep You Away From Me

I can't seem to get you outta my head..
From the time I open my eyes, till the time I get back to bed,
I keep thinking of you all through the day
For even the most disparate things all connect back to you, someway.

As sleep eludes me, fear engulfs me
And I tell myself this can't be true....
That despite myself, I'm falling for you.

I made a promise (to myself), a solemn one
That I wouldn't court love, till kingdom come
I denied myself the very thought and God knows I've tried so hard,
But what good is one's resolve, when alas, I've played out all my cards?

The truth is that we won't admit it, we both try to hide
That which we mutually feel for one another, deep down inside
And while we shy away from love like it's wrong
Each day that passes us by, makes it grow strong.

Then again, like me, you have your reasons
And you prefer to deny it too,
But beleive you me, if it's meant to be
Even YOU can't keep you away from me.
