Shadows Upon the Wall
The candle flickers,
shadows dance upon the wall,
from outside I hear you call.
The door opens, and there you are,
you have come to me from so far.
I take your hand, lead you to my bed,
together we lie.
bodies touching, from toes to head.
I open my eyes, but you are gone,
shadows still dance upon the wall,
it was only a dream, after all.
