You hint of lavender

Dancing barefoot on carpets of clouds

Drifting into my heart

When I wasn’t aware of your being


Your voice sings

To the half-sleep, half-wake state

Of the world yawning

Before morning coffee brews


You dance before me

Take my hand, I’ll lead you to dreams

That took place in the night

You were there, I know


You told me of love

Of your dreams, of your deepest desire

To be flying

Even when others are watching


I’ll read you poems

They are, after all, for you

They always have been

I just never knew.
