I Had a Dream

A Dream By William McCarthy

I had a dream You were here

I held you

I held you And I didn't let go

I held you And I didn't let go I let my tears flow

I held you And I didn't let go I let my tears flow And our words sow Seeds

Seeds

Seeds Of newfound trust

Seeds Of newfound trust And of age-old love

Seeds

Seeds To one day grow

Seeds To one day grow Into a tree used to create

Seeds To one day grow Into a tree used to create The ships of our relations

Seeds To one day grow Into a tree used to create The ships of our relations Used to create the hardened

Seeds To one day grow Into a tree used to create The ships of our relations Used to create the hardened Foundations of our temples

The temples

The temples Being our bodies

The temples Being our bodies The foundations

The temples Being our bodies The foundations Being my promise

The temples Being our bodies The foundations Being my promise My promise to keep You safe and warm

The temples Being our bodies The foundations Being my promise My promise to keep You safe and warm Promise to keep you Loved and understood

How could I burn the wood Of that tree

How could I burn the wood Of that tree Would I not kill all That we would be

But there's gas on my fingers

But there's gas on my fingers And a match in your hand

We sat together on the bench

We sat together on the bench By the crossing of love and time

We sat together on the bench By the crossing of love and time Like a graph illustrating The exact moment

We sat together on the bench By the crossing of love and time Like a graph illustrating The exact moment They both reach zero

And we watched

And we watched Without waiting for help

And we watched Without waiting for help Without waiting for a hero

And we watched Without waiting for help Without waiting for a hero We watched

And we watched Without waiting for help Without waiting for a hero We watched As our tree burnt down

Our bodies Wore closer to closing time

Our bodies Wore closer to closing time Our minds Inched to that finish line

Our desire to succeed

Our desire to succeed Succumbed to the desire Of our needs

Our will to keep us alive

Our will to keep us alive Dwindled

Like a candle

Like a candle Taking its last breath

Like a candle Taking its last breath Like it was

Like a candle Taking its last breath Like it was Parked

Like a candle Taking its last breath Like it was Parked In the path

Like a candle Taking its last breath Like it was Parked In the path Of a monsoon

My words meant Nothing anymore

My words meant Nothing anymore As they were planted In barren grounds

My tears had No use anymore

My tears had No use anymore But to weigh down Your shoulders

I had to let you go

I had a dream

I had a dream You were here
