    Sometimes it's semantics
    Sometimes one word, changes everything
    The man in my dreams, the man of my dreams....
    Untouchable images, or a real life King

    The man in my dreams...
    I never know when he'll visit me
    But when he does, he's right on time
    Making my spirit soar in a technicolor fantasy

    The man of my dreams
    Tells me when he'll be there
    Then like clockwork he is
    Assuring me with his warmth and care

    The man in my dreams
    Our meetings are...perfection
    He caresses and confesses amour
    Solidifying our surreal connection

    The man of my dreams, he's not perfect
    And certainly, neither am I.
    But as I try to calculate all that I love about him,
    infinity times itself equals those reasons why...

    That man in my dreams
    Gee, I'm not sure if we've ever actually met
    Or ever will...Yet his touch leaves such an imprint
    such an impression, that I sometimes forget
    He's not real

    But perhaps....
    That man in my dreams
    is a delectable appetizer, a foreshadowing of the
    imperfectly perfect man of my dreams, or so it seems

    The man in my dreams, the man of my dreams...
    In a universe filled with beautiful Black kings
    I feel, it's indeed possible to have both :)

    Yes, it most certainly is possible to have them both, or for that matter, the both being the "One" person. I love this line: "The man in my dreams, The man of my dreams" ...kinda reminds me of the old song:Two Lover's ..when both of them were "He" :10900:
    I can remember well dealing with the "Of and In" of a man.
    Awesome write sis!!

    Yes, to have the "in" and "of" be one person...yes indeed queent, that's the ticket. Thank you sis, much appreciated.
    To meet such a person would be some kind of wonderful. Thank you So'ja.
