I Dreamed You Into Being
I dreamed you into being,
so many years ago.
An injured young girl’s desperate wish,
for a love that does not hurt.
I saw you first in a song,
my bridge over troubled waters.
I didn’t know you then,
but I was sure you existed.
It took years to find you,
and I kept my heart open.
I lit a candle for you
in a corner of my heart.
When I thought I could bear no more,
I heard you whisper to me.
I walked over a thousand miles
searching for you.
I searched the quaint chapels and
I searched the silver mountains.
I searched the golden plains.
I searched the verdant forest.
I searched the turquoise sea.
I searched for you in lovers’ arms.
I thought I caught a glimpse of you,
gazing into me.
And it took a long, long time to realize
you were always there.
In the silver mountains.
In the verdant plains,
In the turquoise sea.
You were there in the songs,
in the grand and modest churches,
and in my lovers’ embrace.
A most profound and elegant discovery,
and so joyful it has been.
I have always experienced you throughout my life
because you have always been residing in me.
