Sweet Visions

Spoken softly into the night
Though in the dark, he speaks of light
Promises of brighter days
Are only words in the haze
Of sleep and wake within her mind
Stirring dreams of a tender kind
Replacing nightmares that used to haunt
With sweeter visions that seem to taunt
In a love so true she just can’t conceive
But he won’t give up making her believe

Safe Within

The morning light filters in
So softly upon her skin
A smile growing upon her face
For fading dreams she tries to chase
She opens her eyes, they disappear
But deep inside she still holds them near
For all the comfort that they bring
Against this world’s most vicious sting
Keeping her mind safe and whole
Despite this life’s daily toll


Dreaming

She closes her eyes and begins to see
All of those things she wishes could be
To be held so tight and held so dear
To know that love is always so near
To feel that kiss that reaches so deep
To know that her heart someone would keep
Safe and sound and free from all harm
Free to succumb to all his charm
But the dream will always disappear
And she’ll be left with nothing but fear


Waiting

She closes her eyes and breathes so deep
Holding these feelings she aches to keep
Feeling her heart beating quicker
As the haze of dreams grows thicker
This love in her heart will never fade
As memories so sweet are replayed
In her dreams, asleep or awake
Her smile grows, there’s no mistake
In his arms is where she’s meant to be
And so she waits for him patiently


Just Hold Her

He lies beside her watching as she dreams
All he can do is hold her when she screams
He watches her close as the dreams begin
He knows she is fighting demons within
Their causes and source she’s never revealed
The tragedy of past she keeps concealed
He aches so deep to fight in her place
So this pain one day she can erase
So each night he holds her tighter still
Until that day peace he can instill


Soaring Free

Oh how she aches to be free
From all of life’s tragedy
To grow wings and fly away
Into skies not touched by gray
Where she could soar way up high
Touch the sun that lights the sky
Visit the moon and the stars
Have them erase all her scars
Feeling freedom on her face
As she finally takes her place
Among the clouds, soft and white
Where she can dance with delight
But she wakes and finds again
This life that she’s trapped within
