I’d Dream about Love If I Could | A Poem by Steve Higgins

I’d dream about love
If I could.
Instead I dream about motorbikes and racing cars
About writing books and a sailing barge
But I’d dream about love,
If I could.

Sometimes I dream about a pretty girl
With beautiful hair and big round eyes
She dreams about love,
Well, if she doesn’t,
she should.

I’d dream about love
If I dared.
Instead I dream about sunny beaches,
About swimming pools and bars,
and very fast cars
but I’d dream about love
if I dared.

I’d dream about love,
I would.
If I wasn’t stubborn and stuck in my ways
If I wasn’t lost in a love of the past,
I’d dream about love,
If I could.
