Darkness slips away with dawn
As I return to stretch and yawn.
My dream friends just evaporate
Into an endless wistful state.
It makes me sad to see them go
And often I awaken slow.
Hoping someone will arrive
Who drives all moments from my mind.
And causes dreamy skies to fill
With falling stars and love fulfilled.
As mid this I will surely see
Love’s secret epiphany.
How many times will harsh bells chime
And take me from this end of time?
Must I be torn and sent bereft
To wander as a crier adrift
Dreaming of my heart’s desire
Lost under the sun’s bonfire?
Eternal bliss with her I seek
God’s envoy with presence unique.
But now I wake once more she’s gone
And left me warm upon the dawn.
One night I pray she comes for me
My own true lovely destiny.
And once again I’ll be entranced
Beg her to do her heavenly dance.
I’ll touch her lightly not let go
Until she touches my heart Oh!
Yes on this day I’ll not be home.
And you will find me here alone.
Wrapped in sheets upon this bed
A smile embedded on my head.
Then call my family have a fire
Finish off all earthly desire.
Let laughter reign and envy me
Enraptured in love’s mystery.
