What Can I Dream (poem)

Updated on February 9, 2013

What can I dream to find the words to say

The changes which I go through when you’re near

Those things I knew all seem to slip away

The music which is you is all I hear


It’s you the voices streaming ‘cross the sky

It’s you the rivers running through my soul

And when the scent of wishes wonders why

It’s you the purpose which will make me whole


What can I dream that’s worthy of your grace

Would heart still beat if suddenly you’re gone

What can I dream which sorrow can’t erase

Would sun enjoy the glory of your dawn


With time now heating take my offered hand

What dreams can’t find our love may understand
