Pulled up the warmth that blankets my dreams
Slipped into sleep to envelop my needs
I replay one moment again and again
With not one waking answer as to where or when.

I’ve imagined one scene a thousand different ways
So where is the one who simply isn’t afraid?
Who brings to life one dream in original words
And shares it with me as it needs to be heard?

Somewhere there’s one who ignores the fears
Takes charge of what’s right and makes it clear
One embraces the longing that comes in the night
But lets it go freely when the answer is right.

One comes in waves and drenches my soul
Then vanishes for days…keeps me on hold
Am I one in a million…or one of a few more?
Acknowledge the truth and open the door.

How does one separate fact from the fiction?
With one sheltered life full of many contradictions
You hesitate to take just one painless chance
When you desperately need that one breathless dance.
