One night I sat there mindless
dreaming of those gone and timeless.
Thoughts were scattered everywhere
amongst the starry sky.
Outside there was a creature,
behind its mask there was a dreamer--
a dreamer sent from distant skies
where all lost souls are found.
The dreamer came inside
as the moon called forth the tide.
He told tales about his journey
before he learned to fly.
The light--a candle burning.
On the wall a shadow's lurking.
Looks behind to find a meaning--
perhaps an open door.
as his tale he came to finish,
putting music to my words
that no one's ever heard.
The black fades into white
as the hours pushed the night
into light for just a day
until we dream again.
