“COME FIND ME IN THE WILDERNESS”

Come find me in the wilderness
I’ll wait for you in dreams
The deepest shade of midnight blue
Will cover all the seams
We will not feel the coarseness of
The thick and jagged line
That tore through every fiber
And knit your heart to mine

Wordless recognition
Does not require a voice
Don’t tell me to forget you
I do not have a choice
The eyes that burn with tragedy
The magic in their sting
I remember, I remember
I remember everything

This ordinary moonlight
Has granted us reprieve
So speak to me in metaphor
The truth that I believe
Is there a place for dreamers
In a world so wide awake?
If I could ever find it
My heart would never break

Come find me in the wilderness
Outside of time and space
Make love to me in reverie
As tears roll down my face
And whisper that you love me
Just as you did before
Clinging to each other
As drowning men to shore
