Without you

a poem by Ruchi Shrimali

Without you
I would like to sleep and dream,
Dream about you
But I cannot sleep
I lie down and stay awake
Thinking about you
And before long
Its dawn already
And even when I do fall asleep
I don’t dream about you
I fear
Dreams are not true
But you are a truth
And I love you
And I dare not dream about you.
