I dreamt in a seemingly endless sleep

A deepened dormancy of 40 winks
It was so lonely I could only weep
And thought until I could no longer think.

The days went past, and I slept and I slept
Never knew what I was about to miss
Something was missed; I knew that, so I wept
When I met you, I knew you were this.

My memories begun when I saw you.
I never knew dreaming could be so deep.
I want to know the world, just with us two.
I’m awake, now I never want to sleep.

The author's comments:
My poem is in iambic tetrameter 4 per line and end rhyme “I dreamt in a seemingly endless sleep, A deepened dormancy of 40 wink’” I tried keeping it the same throughout the whole poem but it was tuff, I also used like a descriptive feeling to show what I feel to create this feeling for the reader, the end of the poem is me realizing and kind of awaking for the first day of my life after finding my girlfriend for example “My memories begun when I saw you. I never knew dreaming could be so deep. I want to know the world, just with us two. I’m awake, now I never want to sleep.” I used Imagery in the begging “It was so lonely I could only weep, And thought until I could no longer think.” to show how sad I was without her, before we meet.
