she comes dancing through my dreams

 

when i find her dancing through my dreams

i can wake in a morning’s sun with a smile

when i find her swimming in the words that are

greyish winter skys disappear

and give way to a springs colour bloom

a  love that was still, now turned,  looms deep inside the soul

as hope hangs in the memory and the memory births chance

a love never yielding itself to fading out

but a  love that seeks can find her evermore

she is just as soft and gentle as a breeze on the ocean shore

she is kind and she is as  loving as any man could ever hope for

she is  the love that overflows the heart

and she is the beauty in every season

a soft snow silently falling

a tree full of new leaf buds blooming

a summers sunset,  painting a sky with colour

an autumn forest,  of orange, reds and gold leaves

oh,  she is beauty, she is my every breath

my every desire,  she is my every word i write

she is

she is the morning calmness,  a tranquil walk in the park

she is the moon shinning down on the waters

the stars that fill the sky,  she is

the light in darkened corners,  giving hope when all else was fading

she is every love song that comes across the radio

there to remind me what i had,  what i held in my heart

oh!  she is

she is a love that was still, now turned,  looms deep inside the soul

as hope hangs in the memory and the memory births chance

a love never yielding itself to fading out

but a  love that seeks can find evermore

she is just as soft and gentle as a breeze on the ocean shore

she is kind , and she is as loving  as any man could ever hope for

she is

to the river deep

 

 

never coming to speak,

we find the words that linger and stick in the back of our throats

feelings felt and never expressed,  resigned in its motion

now sits left unsaid,  left in an everyday captivation

 

oh, take me down to the river deep

where all the sad songs live

and let me take all the brokenness

and let me make it  into something whole

 

the day’s sun may set for the night

letting  you go was unwillingly

but all  the hopes,  and all the dreams come back

all with a new days sunrise

 

and for the moment, finding  me disappearing  into what was

into the feelings and into the memories, i fade into

the happiness i hold  for you

the joy that forevermore secretly sits patiently –

 

and rushes me back to the river deep

 

oh, take me down to the river deep

where all the sad songs live

and let me take all the brokenness

and let me make it  into something whole

 

yet,  if  the thought of you passes by everyday

the one place where i can find some sort of comfort

and in that, the comfort that is  my breath

also becomes the sworded pain that wounds my heart –

 

never coming to speak,

we find the words that linger and stick in the back of our throats

feelings felt and never expressed and resigned in its motions

now sits left unsaid,  left in an everyday captivation –

 

 

and rushes me back down to the river deep
