A Romantic Dream – Piyangie Jay Ediriwickrema.

I want to walk on the shore with you, hand in hand,

Looking at the white waves kissing the shore,

Listening to the soft murmur of the ocean, and

Feeling the cool breeze caressing my face

I want to lie in a meadow, on a beautiful summer morning,

With you by my side,

Feeling the warmth of the morning sunshine,

Listening to your soft heartbeat, and

Dreaming thousands of dreams 

I want to talk with you over a cup of coffee

Without reservations,

Without being judged,

About dreams, about passion, and about life

I want to look into your eyes,

Watch them spark with joy when you see me,

When I embrace you in a loving hug

I want to see your unfeigned smile,

To hear your carefree laughter

Ringing through my ears

Like a delicious melody

I want you beside me,

Guiding me and

Giving me strength and courage

To reach the heights I could not on my own

I want to see your beautiful soul

Filled with empathy and love,

Kindness and concern

I want you with me

Unabashed by my imperfections,

yet loving their individuality 

I want to find a safe haven in your arms,

A sanctuary to turn to,

When the loneliness creeps in,

When the last of my defenses cease  

I want to make a home with you,

an ultimate place to belong to,

ending my wandering journey

being content with a soulmate.
