The shadow of you that enters my dreams
this look in your eyes I donít know what it means,.
The sadness I see fills my heart up with dread
your mouth moves, you speak, I canít hear what youíve said.
You reach out to touch me I canít feel your hands.
I rise up to meet you, but I canít seem to stand.
A tear falls from your eye and rolls down your face.
This room seems familiar, yet I donít know this place.
The fear in my heart seems to fill up my chest.
My mind is exhausted I canít seem to rest.
Your turning to leave me, I scream out to you,
but you donít seem to hear me. What do I do?
"Donít leave me," I cry "Iím frightened, please stay."
Though Iím screaming to you, you still turn away.
Why are you leaving me here all alone?
You promised me mama youíd stay, but your gone.
13 years have passed now, I still have this dream.
I searched through my soul, still donít know what it means.
The seconds the minutes the hours each day.
I reflect on your promise to a child youíd stay.
And though I am grown now with kids of my own.
There are times in my life I still feel so alone.
Its at these times youíve come to me while I slept.
Perhaps its your way to see a promise is kept.
