In My Dreams At Night

In my dreams at night She’ll always be there In my dreams at night She’s the one who cares In my waking dreams I long for the day When our troubles are banished Far and away For in my heart I know she wonders why The Poet is buried And seems to have died Without his courage Without his shame He’s hidden from her And carries the blame To live life easily To take less strife He’s constrained himself Troubling her life Though so very strong Her weakness carries today His meaning before him To burn these away And still I hold him Restrained incomplete While she yet falters Craving the heat Feeling alone in the world She rejoins to past action I all the while knowing Not risking reaction I fear to free him He may open the door Which has once been opened Then closed before But today is not yesterday Her not the one Who pulled away from him Before even begun So I must free the Poet Let him rule the day For I to be me For us to find a way So as I unlock this door And become who I am I rest in the knowing I am a good man And as I lay here still Dreaming today Of our promise and our commitment Carried away I know that soon Sleep will bring rest For in the dreams I will have I’ve let him be his best I vow from today Hereafter without fear For her the Poet Will ever be near In my dreams at night I’ve finally come this day To my companion my purpose My wife if I may
