Sea of Dreams (poem)

Sea of Dreams




Don’t you see, before we bleed

Don’t you understand it can’t be

Don’t you want to be free of me

Close your eyes smile




You know what could have been

All your space your heart is free

Hold your head high another look another smile

Walk right past me to my sea of dreams



The future holds no escape

Now the moment of life

Nothing and all now and forever

Yesterday’s today another day



More light, more darkness

And you not beheld by what you want  to see

Well I’d come running to brush your hair

Crawl to tie to your shoes


 Sink to my knees dive into your sea

Fall into your eyes to get lost for eternity

Well I’d count to three before you could see

Walk with you in your dream of tears


 I’d stand on your shore and swim the dance of stars

Watch the sun fade slide away to another day

Is it me I can’t remember the day I showed you my pain

You taking my sorrow not what could have been tomorrow


 Listening to see the words roll on for you and me

They say it takes two to make a cut

Twice to measure once for the pain

Three tears in the rain washing the stains


Dreams to engage and compromise

Look at the observer who is you

Look at the observer inside and outside you

Look at what you see the one beyond time


 The one that is inside and out

The beholder by the stair climbing the needle’s gaze

To see slender styles of trees dancing the breeze

Watching me waiting for me to dive into the sea of dreams
