A Dream Explained

How can so few words explain a dream?
I walk beside you in my thoughts,
Climbing hills and ancient trees,
Running, laughing childishly,
Never caring if we get lost.

I hear the rush of distant falls,
Holding your hand as we rest,
Soaking up the peace in life,
Sharing what only we can have.

Then I wake up and you're not here,
I long to sleep some more,
If only for a moment,
To hold you in my dreams.
