somewhere in a dream

somewhere in a dream

I’m walking in the morning light
from somewhere in a dream
the colors, taste and sound of love
are never what they seem
I long to feel your pouting lips
upon my weary face
and maybe just a touch or two
to help me through this place

If love were simple, you and I
would dance among the stars
protect our smiles, from earthly trials
the universe is ours
and lay at night, in sweet delight
on silk and satin seas
and take the time, to meld and bind
the way that love should be

I’m running toward the morning sun
as if it holds some key
to push the darkness from my heart
and bring you here to me
I know the feelings, gray and blue
are never what they seem
it’s just the way they feel at night
from somewhere in a dream…

Minute

sidewatch

Minute

times of tiny togetherness,
small moments,
in a too long day
when one smile from you
freezes reality,
and hand touching hand
means more to the universe
than the planets
themselves

oh, I want you, already
in some ways
but the wanting,
to want you in all ways,
seems
just a heartbeat away

sometimes the head
can’t translate
what the heart might scream
aloud
yet, when your eyes
meet mine
life reveals her rhythm
without need
for words

and the precious things
about you
hidden behind
hauntingly hazel eyes
have me hungry
for millions
of minutes more..
