It is evening and the shadows fall deep,
It is time for you my Love too sleep.
Close your most wondrous, beauteous eyes,
And we shall head to our dark night skies.
In your dream wait for me outside your door,
Through dark night skies my eagle does soar.
I travel over waters far and wide,
The wind of dream speeding me to your side.
I come in at speed and you are waiting,
Our trip to the great forest you have been anticipating.
You jump up on my back and you hold on tight,
And i leap up and we do climb high into the night.
Upward, upward in the glow of the moon,
We shall pass through the veil very soon.
And it shall be the light of day,
And we shall walk through great wooded glory.
We go through the veil and by the great forest we stand,
I become man and by your side i do stand.
We look upon the old and wise and we wonder much,
If there uppermost branches can Heaven touch.
I take your hand and we enter this wooded wonder,
The sun is bright but we are cool, the green cover under.
And the old arms of these trees reach up in prayer,
To the deity that had planted them there.
And by one great oak we stand and lean,
The scented air so cool and clean.
Into your brown eyes i do lovingly look,
My Loving feelings an open book.
With hand softly upon your cheek, our lips do meet,
Then you come in close and our world is complete.
And the aroma of the forest we both do smell,
As our bodies move so close under our sentinel.
And silently the giant tree looks on,
Its branches softly playing a dreaming song.
The birds in their nests softly whistle along,
While on forest floor our Love does grow strong.
And mighty is this one great tree,
Mightier than any other in this forest of glory.
This must have been the first of the mighty to be planted,
And to this tree eternal life must have been granted.
And on a carpet of dream we now lie,
Our li[s fiercely crushing, our hearts soaring high.
And the mightiest Lord does look on,
And our own sweet passion becomes stronger than strong.
Here we are in Love's own dream,
Is anything here as it may seem?
And just around the corner is reality,
Where you are still my Loving ecstasy.
In all this mighty forest this is our favorite tree,
Which the Angel's use to come down, this world to see.
This special tree has been watered by Angel's tears,
That have been cried to sustain it through countless years.
Now through our lifetime and all that shall be,
Know this dream is just because you said you loved the tree.
