Winding down the Stairs of Tomorrow


Frozen fingers
Rest on
A key board
Feeling
The moment
Rise up
To meet
The words

Stopped by
The silence of
No more

Stillness in
Memory

And footsteps
Vanish into
The back of
A closet
Where dust
Settles in
And life
Forges
New
Imprints

Oh how
I wish
Tomorrow

Oh how
I dream
Today

To close
Eyes and
Awaken to
A different
Rising of
The sun—
Hearing
The voice of
Love beckoning
Me down
Winding stairs as
Light
Breaks
Shadow to
Release
The cold
Floor from
Its winter
Shell

Oh how
Intensely
The mind
Can see
What the
Heart
Yearns to
Feel

And
In this
Vision
You
Appear as
I turn
The corner in
My life to
Meet your
Smile and
Gentle
Gaze with
Arms
Wrapping
Around your
Waist
Encircling
You with
My strength as
My chin
Rests on
Your shoulder
And I
Breathe in
Truth of
Comfort of
Love of
This unconditional
Love affair of
Imagination so
Real that
I smile in
Thought of
You

I dream
You into
Existence as
I dream
My soul into
Creation

To be is
To believe
I may be

To live is
To dream
I am alive in
Love

Ah, I see
Your smile
And I am
Lifted to
A greater
Moment of
Seeing
You in
My soul in
My vision in
My dreams
I love
You again

But in
This moment
I am not
Pretending to
Be in
Love but
I am being
In love to
Remind
Myself that
Love is
Beyond
Waiting—
It is living
This moment into
Existence

And you
My love
Who
Waits for
Me to
Awaken
Listen to
My footsteps as
They
Draw close
And I promise
I will find
You in
The light
Beyond
The shadows of
My heart and
I will be
Yes, be alive
In love with
You and
Speak to
Your heart with
A tender
Voice that
Reminds
You—
I am not a dream.

I am here.
And these arms are real.

All you have to do is dream now…

Yes dream
Dream me into
Existence too

And I will
Meet you in
This moment of
Dreaming of
Loving of
Living
What has
Always been
Real—
I am real and
Tomorrow is
Coming and
The sun will
Rise
Again

Until then…

You are in my dreams.
