Shallow Sleep


I just saw you

Beyond the course of time

A room that we once shared

But my memory's a haze

Forgetting what was said

I gently held out my hand

And in that perfect moment

You disappeared - I lost you over again

In a shallow sleep I dreamt I was seeing you

Just how I remembered

Brimming with tenderness

And somewhere in the caim

A feeling that nothing had ever changed

Your presence close beside me till I wake

I just saw you

A moment Far too brief

Before the daylight came

But my heart is beating fast

Perhaps we'll meet again

In a shallow sleep I dreamt I was seeing you

Just how I remembered

Brimming with tenderness

And somewhere in the calm

A feeling that nothing had ever changed

Your presence close beside me till I wake

I see you - until I wake from shallow sleep

An artist without a brush

Can't paint upon the canvas

Without you here - there is no colour

A colourless landscape

In a shallow sleep I dreamt I was seeing you

Just how I remembered

Brimming with tendrness

And somewhere in the calm

A feeling that nothing had ever changed

Your presence close beside me till I wake

I see you - shallow sleep
