A poetic double bill
Have you ever had a dream, where words are soft and sweet?
Yet when the morning light returns, those words are out of reach!
Have you ever heard a song, whose words your mind had buried deep?
The words will only come alive, in the darkness of your sleep.
Have you ever felt a touch – which seemed to reach your soul?
Passion steaming deep within, yet when you wake you’re cold!
If only life were like a dream, attached without the strings
The perfect lullaby is only sung in our imaginings.
Without you, shadows fill my mind,I open my eyes, but I am blind.Not wanting to know – yet wanting to touch:I think I’m wanting you too much!
I know that I must not fall so fast;I must let a little more time go pas.Yet I already feel myself letting go -Blind to things I need not know!
Shadows around me are pictures of you -Gazing above, with so much to do!I know that I must stop running in fright -Stop clinging to darkness, clinging to night.
I hope you’ll be there to hold my hand -And try to help me understand.
