In Dreams

When I wake up
in the dim, dark light
of the early early morning,
I think of you
because now I know exactly
what you look like
in the moonlight –
and when I can’t
reach out and touch you
I want to take you
back with me into dreams
just for a little while
because it’s safer there,
isn’t it?
