Upon a Bed of Petals

Last night I had a dream, unlike the rest
then begged of Sandman, this one request,
"Please take me there again tonight
and let me feel the sweet delight,
 again, before it fades away,
...take me to where the petals lay"

   We ran through meadows, days were long
   I picked bouquets, and we were young
   We were tan and lean and faces fair
   my flowing dress and windswept hair
   your eyes were dark with passion's call
   you pulled me to the grass so tall
   the earth was fresh, with petals spread
   no words between us needing said
   the sun was shining, skies were blue
   our desperate love was brindled new

Last night I had a dream, unlike the rest,
then begged of Sandman, this one request,
"Please take me there again tonight,
and let me feel the sweet delight,
 again, before it fades away,
...take me to where the petals lay"
