Over-nighting it on the Dreamer's Yacht

The ship is always loaded
With misty looking folks
Who fill the decks and cabins
Wrapped in dreamers’ cloaks

No one lies too far 
Or near the closest sleeper
And being all together
Just helps the dreams go deeper

Waves lap in steady rhythm 
Against the wooden sides
Winds blow with gentle coolness
Matching ocean tides

The number of the dreamers
Doesn’t matter much
Their bodies lie in safety
While their spirits strive 
To touch

The endless
Place of future, past or 
Even never
And anything is possible
- No limits whatsoever

The dreamers’ yacht rides
Up and down 
As wind blows
As water flows

The dreaming yacht goes 
Back and forth
As water blows
As wind flows

And so it goes
And so it goes
All the night long
Until the sun comes up
And wakes them 
With a sweet good morning song

And somehow all the dreamers
Rise from their own beds
On land or on the sea
With no memory in their heads


Riding safely; warmly
Up and down 
Back and forth
As wind blows
As water flows
In syncopated rhythm
As water blows; 
As wind flows

And so it goes 
And so it goes

People live their daily lives
Never knowing others
But somehow feel connections
As sisters and as brothers

It may be that they’re fellow
Whose spirits sleep together
Every night on that sweet boat
In soft angelic weather
