In Dreams
I know there’s
that one for everyone of us
       I feel the shape of you
       I taste your flesh
       I get a scent of you
       I know you
       like I know myself.

In Dreams
I know there’s
that one for everyone of us
       the understanding without words
       the excitement at the thought
       the touch without a touch
       the you within me and
       the me within you.

In Dreams
I know there’s
that one for everyone of us
       my hand holds yours forever
       your arm cradles my heart
       my scent embraces yours
       your eyes sink deep into mine
       entwined like two trees are one.

The Nightmare comes
when I am awake
       and you’re so far
       and you never were
       and the loss leaves
       wet trails on my cheeks.

The Nightmare stays
when I am awake
       and I cannot find you
       and you’re not there
       and my hand and heart are empty
       facing another day.

Swaying between
dream and nightmare
asleep and awake
       yearning
       searching
for that one for everyone of us
       questing
       hunting
for that one for everyone of us
       loosing my faith
       and gaining it
with the tide of
Morpheo’s gifts.
