To touch the silky acres,

To harvest unknown fruit

Of a hidden land imagined.

-

To gather all about me,

To mingle in the senses

Of a hidden land's delight.

--------------------------------------------------------------

I like the sound of the flowing water

When it slips by in the river.

I like the sound of a winter breeze

When it rustles through the trees.

I like them better when I'm with you

Exploring at our ease.

----------------------------------------------------------------

My mind is not connecting,

The pieces don't quite fit.

I find I need correcting

Just to make some sense of it.

-

The fog is getting thicker,

I'm apt to drift away.

The emptiness is quicker,

Hard to keep the hounds at bay.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Once again I stumble

Fairly tumble

Roll and bumble

Down the road.

-

Watch me as I'm humbled

Justly crumbled

Grisely mumbled

From my dreams.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I walk along a road at night

To be alone and think,

To try to soak up what just might

Be possible with you.

-

If I walk along this road,

Do I really think

That I can carry what I hold

While I stumble on the brink?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Darkness like a blanket

Awoke the mysteries

A sudden night of whispers

Like possibilities.

-

We held each other closer

Than we ever had before

I loved you in the darkness

More and more and more.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
