Autumn RidesThere were nights when we would rideon empty country roads, in the autumn.Open-faced, the wind whipped my skinand tossed my clothing as we flew.I remember it well, that sweet smellof honeysuckle and sepia leavesthe deafening engine beneath usas I clung to you, as we roaredpast golden fields and ochre trees.Half-terrified, half-elatedI would raise my face to the skyand watch the stars move with us,and slowly I stretched out my armsto the world, and was free.
I could write...I could write the typical love song - you know the one,of minds merged, souls converged, of loveseats and heartbeats,of rose blossoms and gold, 'to have and to hold';I could repeat sentiments, far too often told.I could write a lyrical love song - one made for a tune,for wedding dances, longing glances, hot romances;for love found or lost, for lovers star-crossed,I could sing a song which would move you, at most.I can't write with innocence, this is no light affair.Won't promise the stars, I can only reach so far.I'm not a fortress, no hero, I can't save your soulYour every happiness isn't in my control.I can't write with absolute conviction, I can'tpromise there'll be no friction, restrictionI can't give you the earth, I'm one human being,and with love and its cohorts there's no guaranteeing.What I will do, is love you the best way I can;To raise you, amaze you, enthral and daze you,To be here forever, through every endeavour,To be with you always, wherever, however
A DreamI dreamed of you.Imprisoned I wept, cowered,held captive by my own demons.As I trembled, a soft hand took mineand pulled me close, to gentle warmth.I dreamed of you.I looked up and saw your face, your eyes,and with no words you stroked my hair,wiped the frightened sweat from my face,kissed my cheek softly and stood me up.I dreamed of you -we ran, you led me from the darkness,we fled, and as we emerged into daylightI fell, stunned by the pain of the brightnessthat my eyes had never seen.I dreamed of you;you knelt beside me in the grass,you lifted my face to yours and kissed me...and made love to me, releasing meand relieving me of those demons forever.I dreamed of you, and then I woke,aching for you, a thousand miles away.I dreamed of you, and knew thenthat dreams can truly be an introductionto one's own heart's desires.
