You are in my dream,
clear as day,
almost in reach.
I am running towards you,
your arms are open,
there is that rare smile on your face.
I did it,
we are almost there,
its not that long.
A clock falls from the sky,
the one thing keeping me from you.
keeping me from waking up next to you every morning,
keeping me from holding you,
keeping from protecting you.
I'm still there,
as close as I can be with the obstacle in my way,
but I cannot do anything else but stay there wait.
I am waiting for the time to pass,
I see you fade away slowly,
I sit there wondering if your image will last.
Time is plentiful,
but days I get to be close to you,
they are limited.
