When The Clock Strikes
2 August, 2006
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


The clock struck four
And I looked for you
But you were not there
For you were only a memory

Had you ever been real
Were you but a wisp of a dream
Somehow I hear you
From time to time

A voice in my mind
Guiding me
Directing my path
But are you real

Perhaps once
Perhaps someday
Perhaps when the clock strikes twelve
I will look for you
