Last Night I Dreamt

Last night I dreamt of the waterfall
and the night that we made love,
on the rock beside the stream
while the mist fell from above.

I dreamt of promises never to keep
and plans that never would be.
It was a memory of long ago
when there was a you and a me.

Only in dreams is our love real.
Only in dreams are you here.
In waking moments I feel the loss,
the loss that can still bring a tear.

A million years has come and gone.
A million lifetimes too,
but last night I dreamt that dream again,
the one of me and you.

Last night I dreamt of the waterfall,
making love beneath it's spray.
All too quickly the dream was gone
as I woke to the light of the day.
