A beautiful dream, once more

1.
And so it is, just like you said it would be…
life goes easy on me…most of the time…
…and I can’t take my mind off of you…

My love, please come, reach out for me, once more
show me that I still live within your heart, your mind

2.
Clue number one was when you knocked on my door…
…and it may be wrong, but it sure feels right…
…whatever comes it will be all right…

Take my hand, draw me closely into you, embrace me warmly
steer me, dance me along the edges of dark canals in starry moonlight

3.
Dance me through the panic…
…be my homeward dove…
…let me feel you moving…dance me to the end of love

Shelter me within your safety, protect me from the world’s cruel spaces
Let me feel your heartbeat in my palm, whisper your breath into my hair

4.
Drinking in the morning sun…
…What made me behave that way…
…using words I never say…

Listen to these treasured tunes, revealing secrets that we share
let the sounds resonate sweetly within our souls, let it strum our sacred cords

5.
…Kiss me like we die tonight…
Only now I see the light…
…Throw those curtains wide…

Conjure again, magnificent memories of pleasures that remain
remember images, feelings, allow the rush of blood through veins

6.
Your words in my memory are like music to me…
And miles from where you are, I lay down on cold ground…
And I pray that something picks me up, set me down in your warm arms…

Assure me that we are alive, skins still warmed by the other’s touch
promise me that we will survive, adrift in this vast and godforsaken ocean

7.
We’d share each other like an island
Until exhausted close our eyelids…
…A joy you can’t keep in…

Let’s repeat our flights of fantasy, let them swell within your core
revive moments of ecstactic bliss, fill pages with fairytales shared, once more

8.
If you want a lover, I’ll do anything you ask me to….
If you want a partner, take my hand….
Here I stand…

Find me, feel me, fill me, the way only you know how to do
Know me, need me, want me, love me, the same way you did before

9.
I find a map and draw a straight line…
…the distance from me to where you’d be..
I touch the place where I’d find your face…

My love, will you come, reach out for me, once more
show me that I still live within your heart, your mind

10
Find me here…I want to feel you…I need to hear you
you are the light to my soul…you calm the storms…give me rest…

I am here, drifting, dreaming, such a beautiful dream
come, wake me, create for us, yet another beautiful day

11.
I & love & you

    Anni, I will have to read this later…sorry…I only got through the first verse and my tears started falling. Good indication that your words are full of emotion :-) Promise to finish it later.

  • Oh, Lisa…sorry! I didn’t mean to make you cry! This was a particularly difficult one to write, so many words, messages, feelings and emotions that I wanted to include…took me a while to write and still, I think it’s not quite right, but…
    I will wait for you to return and read when you’re ready, I’ll look forward to your honest feedback. I always appreciate receiving your detailed, generous feedback.
    Hope to see you back soon!

    This is very beautiful to read, touching, aching and heartfelt. I love the change of rhythm, as for me, it was the spoken words of lyrics and the longed for thoughts of love, expressed silently, alternating between the two. I have really enjoyed how you’ve crafted this so beautifully together to express something so personal, intimate and tender. Love it Anni :-) x

  • Glad to see you back, Lisa! I was wondering if you were going to brave another try at reading this one! ;-)
    So happy that you did, and very glad to hear that you enjoyed the read…it’s really all about the lyrics and the feelings that they inspire…I tried to give this a different ‘look’ and feel to my other writes – found it quite a challenge as one tends to get so set in a comforting writing style, I’m not altogether sure this ‘works’ for me, but it “grows” on me everytime I review it critically… lol
    Thank you for your coming back and the kind comments that I always appreciate so much!

    OOoh, forgot to mention….LOVE THE PIC!!!!! Mmmmm, so serene and dreamlike, floating on clouds. Gorgeous.

  • Isn’t it just perfect…Andy’s romantic images always sing to my dreamer’s heart…It had to be this one, with the lonesome boat adrift on the water, the beautiful tones, reflections…the dreamy setting…it just HAD to be!
