FANTASY REALITY

A Gentle Maiden I do See!
She does not turn to look at Me.
An Enchanting Spirit floats nearby…
She follows with Her Loving Eyes.
All My Kingdom I would trade
For a Single Glance, a Longing Gaze
from this Perfect, Precious Maid!
How can I be a Butterfly?
My Angel, I am Floating Near!
There is nothing You should fear.
Come, and Fly Away with Me!
Yet this cannot be Reality….
Alas, My Dreams are Fantasies.

BEAUTIFUL SADNESS

“IN DREAMS”

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman tiptoes to my room every night just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper, “Go to sleep. Everything is alright.”

I close my eyes, Then I drift away…into the magic night.

I softly say a silent prayer, like dreamers do.

Then I fall asleep to dream… my dreams of you.

In dreams I walk with you.

In dreams I talk to you.

In dreams you’re mine.

All of the time we’re together… In dreams… In dreams.

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone.

I can’t help it… I can’t help it if I cry.

I remember that you said “goodbye”.

It’s too bad that all these things can only happen in my dreams…

Only in dreams… in beautiful dreams.”

The earliest description of February 14 as an annual celebration of love appears in the Charter of the Court of Love. The charter, allegedly issued by Charles VI of France at Mantes-la-Jolie in 1400 A.D., describes lavish festivities to be attended by several members of the royal court, including a feast, amorous song and poetry competitions, jousting and dancing.  Amid these festivities, the attending ladies would hear and rule on disputes from lovers.
