Her dream guy....

by Matthew Schut

She goes home every night and dreams,
holding her pillow close to her heart.
Maybe one day she will finally find him,
the one she has dreamt of from the start.

Her hair sways so beautifully,
her smile lightens a room.
She has the sweetest personality,
and a delightful smelling perfume.

Every day she calls me up,
explaining how she wants to find him.
She tells me that he does not exist,
and her hope is starting to dim.

I gently tell her that he will come,
knowing that she could break into tears.
Deep down I think to myself, what about me,
we have known each other for so many years.

But I never say anything about how I feel
because it could ruin our friendship,
so I try to console her every day,
holding her up, so she does not slip.

How long must I live this way?
I just wish she could open her eyes and see,
that I will cherish her for the rest of my life,
and she would forever be happy with me.

As sad as it is, I'm still here waiting,
I will be here for her until the very end.
Every night I wish she was mine,
but she only sees me as a friend...

Wow, Matt, this poem is so lovely yet sad...

I love the first stanza, it really captivated me, and I love this part "holding her pillow close to her heart" .. it was so significant, showing how she's lonely, or looking for love.. it moved me!

I love how you described this woman... she just seems perfect and lovely... it was sweet imagery that any girl would be flattered by your words!

And the last two stanzas were sad... and made me feel for this person... who wants to be more than friends with her... and if this is a true story you need to go for it! instead of waiting and just being the friend :)

Amazing poem my friend!!! Love it :)
