I fell in love with a ghost,
She visited me in my dreams,
She stroked my face, smiled a tender smile,
And gazed into my heart with her eyes,
I cannot recall her name,
Because she never told it to me,
She just made me feel happy,
And that seemed enough for her.

I would often wake, with the warmth of her touch
still fresh upon my face,
The memory of her beautiful eyes
still makes my heart skip,
And beat to a rhythm I had not felt in so many years,
I would look forward to sleeping
and to be able to feel her touch again.

The dream was always the same,
I would enter a room, of such
opulent furnishing and beautiful decor,
I was always amazed;
The sun would be shining through,
Casting golden rays of hope upon her,
A woman of such beauty that only dreams are made of,
She would always look up and smile at me,
A happy smile,
A loving smile,
She would stand from her seat,
And in a second, be at my side,
Holding my hand, stroking my face,
She would say such wonderful things to me,
Things that carried so much love
as to make a man feel no fear in giving away his heart,
Then she would peer into my soul,
And smile that beautiful smile,
Then she would leave again, smiling as she stroked my face.

But then one day;
As I slept,
She wasn't there,
I received no visit; I was given no smile,
And in my confusion
I despaired.

But then I met someone,
Someone who looked like the ghost from my dreams,
She looked up at me, she smiled at me,
A happy smile,
A loving smile,
And as she rose to greet me,
Everything fell in to place,
And a realisation finally dawned upon me.

She was preparing me for you.
I wrote this little love poem about no one in particular, I was thinking about how love can play on a person's mind and this is what I came up with. I hope you like it :)
