Dream as if you'll live forever, love like there is no tomorrow, dance like there is no one watching.

I reach out
to embrace the earth
of soft cotton
and cushy ground
with little worms hidden.
I close my eyes to see
the round orange sun dancing
beneath my eyes.
My lips part
in a smile
like no other.
I leap up
and run.
My glorious
white train
flowing behind me.
Fresh moist air
pushes its way into
my nose.
Nothing more
perfect than this.
Just when I see my prince
in shining armor
awaiting me on his
white stallion…
I wake up.

Beautiful, vivid, and that whole waking up thing? I'm surprised no one else put 'I can relate'.

I know this sounds petty... but it's great, and nothing can change that. I love poems, and I especially love ones that show real emotion and tenderness. I don't think I'll ever forget this one... if I do, can you slap me?

This is an excellent poem!  I love the vivid imagery and the ending is sort of predictable, but very nice.  I truly appreciate the effort you put into proper punctuation.  Not many poets bother with it, which really annoys me.  So again, excellent work!

heaven is a place / a place where nothing / nothing ever happens.

i like the abruptness of the ending, and this poem is awesome.  but i also feel like you could really go into the fantasy a bit more and have some fun--like discuss dream like sensations of "cushy" in more deatail...but it has a lovely sort of drowsy dream like quality already--phantasmagorical (my fav word totally applies to this poem).

Nothing matters more than those who depend on you, emotionally or physically. Even if the situation is life or death, you have to be there for them, because they need you.
