0249 Return [22 April 1999]

In a dream,
I was with you.
Floating away
On a boat with a silver sail.

The moon
Gilded the waters with silver
And I was in your arms
Drifting into eternity.

It seemed to go on forever,
This ocean that we fell in love on.
You held me close
Devouring my very soul.

We became one,
Alone and together.
Lost and found,
Entwined in ecstasy.

Then, like a flash
Of blue-white lightning,
I opened my eyes
And you were gone.

The night had gone with you
And the morning dew glistened
As if to mock the moon
With the light of the sun.

Agony filled my soul
At the loss of your touch.
I cried out softly,
While cruel day took me further from you.

Oh lovely night,
Return to me my love.
Give me back his love
That I would never have during day.

Bring me his smile,
His eyes that are of such beauty.
Take me back to the night,
Return me to his side.
