He was a lonely man for sure,
Living in world of his own,
His heart cried out in misery,
Amidst thousands of souls to no avail,
To each & everyone who dared to ask,
He had but one answer,
My love is only for the angel in my dreams,
Who will come to me one day in person,
Then that one day finally came,
A night with a sparkling moon in glory,
From a cloudless sky like a silver streak,
Angel of his dreams came to him,
"I am the angel of your dreams,
Came to you from heavens above,
But beware I can stay only one night,
Leaving you with dawn no matter what"
Without a word he extended his hand,
With a lingering smile she came to him,
Kissing him on his cheek tenderly,
Wrapping her arms around his neck,
“Take my hand and I will lead you to where all your dreams can come true.
Close your eyes and open up your heart, For then this flight of dreams so sweet can start.
Dream, Dreamer, Dream.”
She brought him through the darkness to the Light,
Where colors wrapped around him in such delight.
A patchwork quilt of beauty without seams,
Each color was a rainbow full of dreams.
She led him through a hallway of pure ecstasy,
With doors flung open widely all around.
And from each room a song would gently play.
He wished with all his heart that he could stay,
But they drifted in the fragrance of the breeze,
To savor all the flowers and the trees.
They tasted all of life they could behold,
And felt it flow through them in harmony…..
Then his angel turned her eyes to him and said,
“You’re the Keeper of these Dreams inside your head.
Find sweet Dreamers, who would Dream of Love and Light,
These Dreams will lead them safely through the night.
Help these Dreamers Dream will you”
Night went by in blurry ecstasy,
And the dawn came up as usually it does,
With tears unshed in her blue eyes,
The angel flapped her wings and flew away into the dawn,
"You would never see me again my love,
But when you see a twinkling star at night,
That would be me looking down on you,
Think of me then and love me with your soul"
There he was sitting at his threshold,
Looking up at that twinkling star,
But he would never be lonely ever again,
For that star was twinkling down for him.....
The stars shine down,
And watch us live,
Our little lives,
And weep for us,
