My nights are filled with thoughts of love —
— love above the mountains
— love beneath the sea
— love beyond the stars
But, by morning, every dream has fled —
— fled into the sighs of an enchanted dove
— fled into the shadows that a cloud had left behind
— fled into the evanescent fragrances of the mist
One day I had visited your garden.
My nights were like roses along the path.
Their blossoms held dreams that had escaped.
Each petal retrieved a faraway thought.
If only you could come to the gate.
I would offer my bountiful love to you.
I would never need to dream again.
If only I could see you smile one more time.
