JUST DREAMING

Beneath the canopy I dream
In silent summer showers
And dream of things so long ago
My heart it dreams
A dream of woe

While times that we once had are gone
The feelings now still linger
I'll watch the stars and think of you
Lost in the moons that come and go

I pray for when I find some rest
Of moving far away
To lose your face
Your name
Your smile
To move to better days

Beneath the canopy I dream
And wish that life were shorter
Would you rain please cry for me
For I can cry no longer
And would you wind,
Please blow away
These feelings that I have
And would you earth please swallow me
Lying here, already dead.
