I Want To Remember

I am dreaming

alone tonight

of foolish sounds

and untamed whispers

that fall from my eyes like tears

liquid

that

longs for him.

He comes to me

as I dream tonight

and keeps my tears in the high towers far off

where lovers live forever

and dancing

little girls

are left lonely

on the road

as night

crawls

across my rearview mirror.

I am dreaming tonight,

I know that

but his eyes are still beautiful

and still is he

in my thoughts

and I

am with him.

But he has always been the keeper of such things
