Last night as I lay sleeping
So peaceful, safe, secure.
I entered into reverie
Through dreamland’s oaken door.
I walked into a forest,
At the waning of the light,
I heard the spirit of Rhiannon
Ringing out into the night.
‘Twas then I spied a couple –
They were walking side by side,
Striding there in harmony,
Their smiles so great and wide.
The soothing wind was blowing
As they continued hand in hand,
Stardust seemed to grace her hair
As they stepped out on the land.
I overheard them talking
But they didn’t say a word,
Then I began to realise –
It was their souls I heard.
They talked of hopes eternal
‘Neath moonlight’s gentle beams,
Saw each other’s lives in pictures
And tacitly revealed their dreams.
Then he stopped to pick a flower,
A rose so red for her to keep.
He gazed into her crystal eyes
And tried to read her feelings deep.
I wish that I could tell you more,
Elaborate on things they spoke,
But I had to walk back through the door
To gently start to wake.
