What Peaceful Dreams May Come

What Dreams My Come 2

A light

shines warm and bright

and illuminates the stage on which I’ve grown

The stars have all come out, twinkling all about

the makeshift, ragged shanty

I call home.


The time is right to come on inside

Take off this meagre cloak, so thin and cold

Come sit beside me here, reflect in solemn mirth

Skin warmed memories, time drawn within

As we release your body to the earth


‘Tis life, you understand

And you were but a man who followed dreams and made your way

a wandr’ing soul so very much like me

It was the very best you could

With open heart you bid the world come in, denied the painful sting

We mourn the vacant mark on which you stood.


Left the cage, the bird is flying high,

a Phoenix in a molten sky

awakened from the dream of waking sleep

The stage is free, my friend, all beginning with no end

A script complete . . . you truly know your part

One morning more too late

this document of fate

Assisted by a company of stars.


You stopped in for a while and gave us cause to smile

To cast our cares upon the bitter ground

But now the die is cast and you are free at last

Hastened, though, it seems to be, to some

Journey on, o’ sweet and brilliant soul

And truly know what peaceful dreams may come.
