Just a Dream I Had



It was an evening I could never forget
sunset was closing in
the air was fresh

a midsummer breeze
lemonade in hand
watching the Cadillac’s driving by the sidewalk

everywhere people were just enjoying life
I walked towards a gentleman
playing a guitar outside a barber’s shop
I just stood and listened
he played a tune so familiar
yet, I couldn't think what it was

got it, it’s now or never by Elvis

Just then, the barber shop door swung open
and out he came…

the star of the show

oh yes, it was Elvis Presley
I’m a pretty shy gal, but I screamed at the top of my lungs
my all-time favorite
standing right there in front of me

flustered like a ten year old meeting her idol
I dropped my lemonade all over my sandals

he stared at me, almost as if he knew me
then all of a sudden

he started singing to the music of the guitar

a concert just for me?
as tears of joy rolled down my face
the song finished and he went on his way
but not before I got a kiss on the cheek and a wink

I stood for a while, reflecting on
how much the lyrics of the song
meant to me at that one single moment

I never did see him again
but each time I hear his song on the radio

 I remember that concert

the one just for me

the one dreams are made of.

    We had an 'Elvis' at a church I was with. Well, he was older. Looked a bit like Elvis, but collected all his gear, pics, etc.

      • orchidee

        Erm, one or two were bit concerned he might make Elvis an idol. But he did not 'worship' Elvis. He does not look much like him really. lol

                  A wonderful, picturesque and heartwarming piece of poetry here Teddy.15, and it's also a great homage to the King, even if it is a fantastical work.

                  Also, the accompanying visual, is a very nice piece of artwork.

                  Bravo, and I hope that all is well.

                  • Teddy.15

                    Coming from a musician makes me feel very warm, thank you dear AuburnScribbler, I hope all's well with you. 💖

                  • MendedFences27

                    This is what Elvis is doing these days, traveling around filling women's dreams with thoughts of love and romance while being serenaded. He's the dream-troubadour.
                    A wonderful poem about a colorful dream, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

                    • Teddy.15

                      lol or maybe I summoned him! Thank you dear Phil, maybe a dream I wish could come true but at least those who love his music such as my late mother, hearing his voice seems to bring back all types of wonderful memories of childhood. 💖
