A Dream

Ehsan Sehgal

I had dreamed
To meet and see
A lovely and wonderful person
Who would be
The companion of my life
I lived in dreams
That see without asking
That come without thinking
I had looked that dreams
I searched its meaning
And then it happened
I felt that
I had conquered
The world of dreams
But when I woke up
I had lost years of my life
And the life was gone
