Waiting For You
For my soulmate, whoever and wherever you are...

Reality rudely disturbs
My cherished reverie
For I must arise
Wipe the gilded remnants
Of a vicarious existence
From my eyes

Grains of sand
Sands of time
Fall into oblivion
I prolong the inevitable
Realization that illusion
Is as insubstantial
As a moonbeam
Briefly illuminating a truth
Before it too disappears
In fog

Grains of sand
Become deserts
Of eternity
How I wish I could
Wander this desert forever
With you

I don't even know your name
But I know who you are
I don't know where you come from
Yet I know why you are here
And when I see you in this world
I will recognize you
And I will love you
As I always have
