The shadows of your dreams cover your path: False shapes bereft of warmth and gentle love. They do engage in calculated wrath, Hands reaching out to claw and push and shove. But daytime swung its ax on nighttime’s noose; You rose and ran first thing into my slumber My eyes did slit your yells when they turn’d loose; Not yet have I awoke to this day’s number. Yet time does age us, now, ever so slightly Serenity becomes you as you wake And I will take the paths you tread so lightly And pluck the claws from darkness for your sake. Take journeys deep within your world inside, So I may find within you a new pride.
