In My Dreams
In my heart I see her smiling
Even though my arms won’t reach
All my thoughts of her compiling
And I keep them with me, each

In my sleep I see her spinning
Arms outstretched and chin up high
Rosie cheeks are frozen, grinning
Like she knows that she can fly

In my dreams I see her sleeping
Soft and silent by my side
All these thoughts of her come creeping
So I take them for a ride

In my mind I see her swimming
Skin like silk reflecting light
To the top, my feelings brimming
Here with me but out of sight

In my world I see her present
Even though she isn’t near
But I find the thought so pleasant
That I like to think she’s here

i dont think this is a light poem
reasons: (verse 2) person appears to have force of a plane, affronts "frozen" but perseveres in a self-confident manner
(verse 4) impression of phosphorence / incandescense ....contrast with out of sight (sort of soul-ish) and the concept of feelings brimming bring to mind that since she is swimming, she is in fact bathing in your feelings... nope, would not say light poetry at all.... :) but then again it all depends on what point you were trying to make: i think it's clever... tell me if i caught it or if i am missing the point... i am curious now????!!!! :)
