I kissed You in a Dream
I kissed you in a dream last night.
The world stopped turning as our lips lingered,
the universe held in my arms burning.
Through closed eyes a sky full of stars
a meteor pierces our hearts, streaking.
You kissed me in a dream last night.
Birds sang, bells rang, Venus smiled down upon us.
Full moon bursting my heart takes flight.
each to each embraced by the night,
and gentle love rains down all around us.
Waking, your kiss still clings to my lips
sweet morning dew too long has been missed.
Then morning sun filters in and the songbird
takes flight, flying away in the mist
with the joy that my dream sang of last night.
