Sweet Dreams, My Sweet

All A Heart Should Know

When you wake tomorrow you will know our love was right

Because, I will only leave when the dream is sweet, my sweet.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I can't go when there are challenges,

I will keep you safe.

I can't go when there is hurt,

I will mend your heart.

I can't go when there is more to say,

I will give you a voice.

I can't go when there is music,

I will give you one more dance.

I can't go when there are wild imaginings,

I will give you loving memories.

I can’t go if there is fear,

I will give you my strength.

I can’t go if there is doubt,

I will give you my vow.

I can’t go if there is hate,

I will give you my love.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I’ve given all these things:

Music for your laughter;

Smiles for reminiscing;

Stories for sharing;

Courage for tomorrow;

Forgiveness for hurts,

And

Love for everlasting.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Sweet dreams, my sweetheart.

epi,

What a kind, gentle romantic (sometimes a little naughty) you are. I truly believe, my husband left me only when he was sure I was able to fully understand and feel what his love gave me. I thank you and hold dear your comment.

breakfastpop,

Thank you for your encouraging comment and the follow. I really enjoyed the time I spent on your hubs this morning and hope to take a seat at the inn, put on a pot of coffee as I can't handle anything stronger. Of course if things don't change, I just may switch to a different brew.
