To Anaïs – A Lover I Met On The Way
I had a dream
I had friends who dreamed
I had dreams that showed me my dream
I had an insistence
I had to obey.
You must slip off the velvet chains
You must loose your questor spirit
You must unlock the magick
You must discover the hidden path or
You must suffocate.
What is? Who is? Where is?
What is the time?
What is the date?
What is this place?
What is the purpose?
I bade goodbye to wife
I bade goodbye to children
I bade goodbye to dreaming friends
I bade goodbye to all that I was and
I bade goodbye to all I thought that I might become.
Ah that was me in youthful zeal
Ah that was when the breeze was fresh and clean
Ah that was when I laughed at danger and the rain
Ah that was when I could dance and sing
Ah that is the question – will I dance and sing again?
The time is near
The time to slip away
The time to uncover
The time to discover more truth
The time to move on.
Thank you for what you are
Thank you for what you were
Thank you for the days
Thank you for the nights
Thank you for the wine
Thank you for your smile
