The Quest

On the crest of a wave 
On the threshold of a dream 
On the edge of reality 
And fantasy it seems 
On the outskirts of the universe 
At the bottom of the sea 
I search for someone 
And I found me 
Upon a billowing cloud top 
Or on the rainbows edge 
The branch of a redwood 
Or the leaf on a hedge 
Deep inside the shadows of a lunar eclipse 
At the very end of my own fingertips 
I search out with vision 
And then I lose sight 
Looking for meaning in the darkness of night 
It seems that life’s illusion s
Clouded thoughts and dreams 
Are not quite what we thought they would be 
They are seldom what they seem 
Looking on the inside, searching all around 
Emotions and notions they seem to confound 
With my eyes wide open and my mind at play 
Will I find what I am looking for ? 
will I find it all  to day? 
In my daily quest, will I like what I see 
Or simply let my mind wander 
To fulfill some fantasy 
Grasping for reality feeling its bite 
Guiding me though my day 
Filling my appetite for life 
As the sun is slowly sinking 
And setting in the west 
I imagine myself leaping from star to star 
connecting the dots at rest 
My imagination takes me away 
To the lightness of my dreams 
A long sojourn into  the night 
Dancing on silvery moonbeams 
And when this night is over 
I will awaken with a smile 
With the start of a new day 
With hope and grace and style
