Circles Of Time (Constant Dream) - Poem by Guarded Heart

We’re standing in the circles of time
Minuets are constantly ticking by
We’ve only got so much time to make it right
Before you disappear into the night

I’ve dreamed this dream so many times
Yet each night it feels like the first time
And each night I watch you fade
As the morning comes and I’m forced to wake

It invades my thoughts throughout the day
And when I stand next to you, it takes a lot to come to
As I imagine you in my reverie
It seems as though it is one constant dream

How many opportunities will you pass up?
How many chances will I take?
We’re playing with everything at stake

Time doesn’t come in an abundant supply
That’s why, now, we have to live our lives
There will be time enough later to cry, after bitter goodbyes
But right now I want to dream you into existence

The dream isn’t content to leave me be
It tortures me every eve, while I’m restlessly sleeping
I see me begging to be taken
And then, by some cosmic force, I waken

If time didn’t have a hold on what we do
If I didn’t have to give you up so soon
Then I wouldn’t worry so much about losing you
But it seems time will not wait for me
And soon you will want to leave
And I’ll be plunged back into the dream
Where you are all I see
