Deeper Than Dreams

Deeper Than Dreams

Another restless night

The moon rises through a cloud

Ragged threads of yesterday

Fragments torn from the winds of time

Fragile as a flame

Existing now only within our hearts

The faraway call of a bird

Out of place in the dark

No-one one is there

Are we dreaming or waking?

We can’t quite remember

Long ago we lost the questions

Words that cannot be spoken now

Because we let ourselves forget

Here is the point that everything returns to

And something greater than ourselves

Flows through us like rain

Turn the pages my love

Turn away, from your pain

These things that make you smile

That stir the substance within

Will keep us safe

Until the next unguarded moment

Of our resilient hearts

What you see of me

Through the mirror, beyond your gaze

All that you see, is all that I am

Even the sky, needs the earth to reveal it

Although you stand on distant shores

Clouds sprinkle the sun across the water

And spin a web of connection

And I know beyond knowing

That in imperfect, flowing time

Memories are deeper than dreams

Reaching backwards to love

We will be one with the loss

And with the finding
