Dream Me Your Dreams
Author: Terrie*


dream me your dreams
i caint grasp onto reality anymore
i caint even visualize ocean tides and streams
just visions of many many open doors

i know not which one to enter
i get pulled into the center
will you stay with me
so into your dreams i cain see

will you keep me from lyin' awake
i've taken all i cain take
i caint relive an empty dream no more
i caint even place myself upon a shore

i try to draw it within my mind
my mind wonders
with no place to go
my heart searches for my soul
myself i'm caint seem to find
i just want to once again become whole

i've become like a book with empty pages
i caint even share my feelings and my thoughts
they all seem to have drifted away
will you still love me and hug me like you do?

will you still look into my eyes
and say Dad I love You,
even when i won't remember you?
if i make you cry
please remember i won't remember why..

dream your dream for me for just one day
so that i cain prevent the rest
of these emotionless thoughts from slowly fadin' away
