I was walking through my life
With not a friend in sight
Every night I cried and prayed
But no-one came in spite.
One night I had a peaceful dream,
And all my fears dissolved.
In my dream I had a friend,
And someone I could love.
As I slept that peaceful night,
The dream I dreamed was short.
Someone there had caught my eye,
A man I'd known before.
He approached me and we talked,
We played some games and laughed-
We laughed so hard we cried that night
I'd never felt more glad.
When I awoke as morning came,
My happiness remained.
Peacefulness enveloped me
As I went on my way.
On that same day our paths converged,
And I could almost swear
That wasn't just coincidence,
You were an answered prayer.
We walked together several months
But never hand in hand.
However, I felt close to you,
I knew you were my friend.
I needed to be near to you
Whatever chance I got,
But after all that we'd been through,
It seemed like all's for naught.
Somewhere along, our paths were split,
Like I had never thought.
Our bond had just begun to build,
And now our journey'd stopped.
I waited for a while and then,
As I was moving on,
I found myself alone again-
I blinked and you were gone.
You're far away and out of reach
Our time has met its end.
But even though you're far away,
You'll always be my friend.
I will not see you for a while,
For years and years, it seems,
And then one day you may become
An answer to my dreams
Then one day we will meet again
On earth or in the skies
Though life will change our paths for us
And time will pass us by,
One day our paths may cross again,
Wherever we may be,
We'll come together hand in hand
And walk in harmony.
