I saw you once...

I saw you once in a far
off dream, you were laughing
across a silver stream,
Oh...
I remember it well, my
heart so swelled, In love so
fast I never fell,
It was amazing, that look in
your eye, a blue more deep
than the fading sky.

A waterfall? No, it couldn't
be, but your hair flowing in
the autumn breeze, a deep
gold with silver streaks
lighting the sun and mountains
peaks...

But have you ever seen across
that stream, brown and drab
and never green?
I gaze into your evergreen,
alive with color at every
seam,

Could you ever cross that silver
stream, and light the path
that grants my dream?

Or shall I sit here, in this
dark of night and gaze into
your world of light?
Or shall I go across and
fight the stream, which keeps
me from my beloved dream?

What say ye 'O lord of fate?
Shall I dwell here in this
lonely state?

But wait!

Do angels play with me?
Laugh and mock and suffer
me? Or did a dream invade my
dreams it seems? Did you
really cross that silver
stream?

Do I hear the sounds of
splashing toes against the
drop of rains and bows?
Or do I hear the sounds
of bells abound, to and fro
and all around?

I hear the bell, I hear it's
ring, the morning rays it
starts to bring.

I awake and hold my pillow
tight, afraid to find that
lonely sight...

But wait!

What do I hear?
The sound of splashing close
and near?

I jumped from sheets of salty
sweat, to the window sill
I bound and leapt!

I gazed upon an ageless sight,
my dream of dreams came through
the night!

I leapt from off that lonesome
sill and ran against a grassy
hill…

And then I saw you once...
In a far off dream…
