He loved her in his waking,
He loved her in his dreams
He loved her when she was sound asleep
When she wasn't fearing means
When she was deep asleep
The tension left her eyes
The creases disappeared
The corners of her lips would rise
For she was trapped
In a world of her own making
A dreamscape
Nothing lacking
Where faeries danced
And sirens sang
Where the rhythm of her heart
Beat not with a pang
Where the sun was always setting
And the twilight had no end
Where fireflies ruled the night
And any wounds would mend
He loved her then
When she was asleep
For all the world's chains
Made not a peep
When she was free to dance and sing
Even if only in her mind
Her heart an mind were finally one
And her soul and spirit bind.
