I have Dreamed of you so much

I have Dreamed of you so much 

I Have Dreamed of You so Much

I have dreamed of you so much that you are no longer real.

Is there still time for me to reach your breathing body, to kiss your mouth and make
your dear voice come alive again?I have dreamed of you so much that my arms, grown used to being crossed on my
chest as I hugged your shadow, would perhaps not bend to the shape of your body.
For faced with the real form of what has haunted me and governed me for so many
days and years, I would surely become a shadow.O scales of feeling.I have dreamed of you so much that surely there is no more time for me to wake up.
I sleep on my feet prey to all the forms of life and love, and you, the only one who
counts for me today, I can no more touch your face and lips than touch the lips and
face of some passerby.I have dreamed of you so much, have walked so much, talked so much, slept so much
with your phantom, that perhaps the only thing left for me is to become a phantom
among phantoms, a shadow a hundred times more shadow than the shadow the
moves and goes on moving, brightly, over the sundial of your life.

This poem is all about a man who is head over heals for this women that is in his dreams. Maybe this women was his wife at one time and she has passed away, and now he is dreaming of there times together. This poem really stuck out to me because finding this type of love for someone is hard to come by in this day in age. There was an amazing amount of imagry that  as used through out and a great amount of hope that slowly fades away. I choose this photo because when i was reading this poem this is the image i got in my head of a beautiful couple that could only be together in a fairy tail. I think there is a underlying story behind this poem and i would love to hear your thought about this poem.
