Autumn Dreams

Why so quiet and distant now?
and where might I search for you again?
Why so much concern on your brow,
I am still me and happy when you're near.
I can remember when I met you then,
filled with much doubt and fear.

So I'm trusting we'll not change,
that a friendship remains - for you and I.
Nothing now could seem so strange,
or is the distance between my imagination?
What lifts our heart which flies so high,
and moves our very foundation?

Like an autumn day in dreams,
so I would rest in your arms for a season.
And more than mere sleep it seems,
like a daydream comforting with illusions.
Like an irrational fear without reason,
love provides all our conclusions.

Happy under the sun and gold,
so am I with you, anytime or anywhere.
As love drives away that winter cold,
I'll not grow old, but richer in memories.
So too, you will only grow more fair,
as deep and beautiful as the seas.

Let My Sorrows Be No More

I am tired and tired of sadness,
and soon I'll put my night behind me.
I long for my joy and my gladness,
and a friend, the warmth of a summer day.
I long for dreams of what might be,
and wonder is there a better way.

Somehow I've always known you,
in the fear and darkness of my nights.
In summer days, I've knew you too,
in lonely hours under the lazy midday sun.
You were my hope in starry nights,
long before my days had begun.

So yours is my first word found,
when my own good words do fail me.
Though I should hold my ground,
know yours are the hands I should hold.
Though every trouble may leave me, 
days with you will not grow old.

Hope is a happiness for the day,
that tomorrow is greater than the last.
You smile, take every worry away,
the way you've done so many times before.
Help me leave yesterday in the past,
and let my sorrows be no more.

The Dream

One night past I had a dream,
that I held my dreams in my hand.
More real than dreams do seem,
I waited and so unexpected you came.
Though nothing I felt was planned,
I've loved you just the same.

So there I waited in that place,
where you quietly waited here too.
And I felt a hand and saw a face,
as familiar as time and like your own.
Without a look I knew it was you,
and so I knew I was not alone.

Never had trust so known me,
and doubt not been my companion.
Yet you endured me patiently,
watching intently in the manner I do.
It's greater than I could imagine,
that I could dream this of you.

Patience is my greater reality,
for my hopes tempered with time.
And if there is a love within me
that it somehow find its way to you.
Though only words and rhyme,
I hope their meaning will do.
