Into the night I sing you still
My whisper beckons you in dreams
To count the stars over each hill
And catch their dusty ribbon streams

The birdsong leaves your window sill
And follows like a shadow feeds
On the light of your fleeting heel
My kiss, your cheek, a moonlit breeze

So, travel by your dreams propelled
And by the by you’ll come to me
Overwhelm me with your will
And Flood me with your mystery

And while you linger at my door
Wrapped in my cloak of stars and night
I’ll press into your heart a map
So that my hearth you’ll always find

And wrapped inside the map a quill
Parchment and a silver key
To scribe your dreams upon the wheel
Always yearning, turning back to me
