A dream that fell and dried on cotton
As waking eyes saw what sleep had forgotten
The shapeless form of empty space
Left void of sleeps purest embrace
A walking tear now hidden in the rain
Shed for the loss of fortunes pain
A heart that begs to return to the past
Aware all the same that time has passed
The calming presence of eyes that just knew
No words ever needed at a glance understood
No safety ever sought though in those arms found
From a world that had only ever sought to drown
Once given freely, for life without regret
A key that locked with each leaving step
Fate that was presented on fortunes wings
In an instant allowed a life to begin
For too long sheltered and hidden behind walls
Understanding to be alone was only my call
