~> Alone <~
Cascade of cool water flowing over me;
nurture, enlighten and set me free.
I close my eyes and drift far away,
Surrounded by shadows of children at play.
A gentle breeze alights on my face;
the touch of the sun with its warm embrace.
No lines of thought allowed in my mind.
Just wisps of dreams, like a drink of fine wine.
Cascade of cool water surrounding me;
Like a sweet caress by a fallen tree.
No movement would I dare to make,
For surely the magic will dissipate!
Grey mist of time surrounds me yet,
Does my memory fail; surely we’ve met?
For when I wake and you’re not there,
It’s then… I feel this dark despair.
