across the sky
i dream of a flyway
to the silent stars

For Recuerda Mi Corazon – Postcards from Paradise
Awake, my child
come out to play with me
in the universe –
we can laugh at the gurgling brook
and sing with the mockingbird,
I know you heard my owl last night
you took delight in the hooo…hooo…hoo -ing
even as you slumbered on…
Did you know, I took delight in your delight?
Oh Dreamer! Let me drop everything
to come out to play with you,
show me every star in every galaxy,
I want to fly through the sky
with the birds and the bees,
roll in the soft cool grass
and cover myself with cherry blossoms,
What a playground you have made for me!
Am I awake or asleep, Dreamer?
The Dreamer (laughing) :
It doesn’t matter, my child,
because, awake or asleep,
you are a dreamer,
just like me.
