One Man's Dream (Yanni)
Author's note: This one was written as a result of listening to Yanni's song One Man's Dream, as suggested by geode... It was written to her, asking a question for both of us... I knew by this time that she and I were but friends... good friends; and that is all that it would be...
But, we both were facing the same kind of empty future... it is good to have friends... friends though, are not the same as a partner, a lifemate...
One Man's Dream...to my dream
Sleep departs... and slowly, gently, awareness creeps in... and, I wonder... laying alone in my bed; alone, in an echoing house - a house haunted with memories of things that never were, never could be... Alone... in an echoing house full of broken dreams, efforts, years of work and struggle-- now naught but dust... I wonder... I dream... Will there ever be One by my side, Her hand, and mine--entwined? Will there ever be One--who will never depart? Will I ever awaken--to turn and look deep into Her eyes as she awakens, and see there the full Soul-Knowledge of Love, compassion, acceptance... flowing deep and unending between our very beings? Will there ever be times when no words are spoken; yet spoken more clearly than if shouted from a mountain top as I reach for Her - and Her for me; Our Soulsongs transcending life, singing our love? Will there ever be quiet times walking as two, yet one, along stream banks, quietly conversing, sharing, loving, living? Walking along beaches and forest paths, secluded glens and meadows, laying in wild grasses sprinkled with fragrant flowers... Will this ever be? Will there ever be the One with whom I can share fog-wreathed forests and feather-needled pines, the One for whom my heart cries out? Will I ever dance with One beneath the moonlight, beneath a panoply of glistening stars, holding Her soft and warm in my arms, content in Herself and in me? Will there ever be soft discussions, gentle awakenings that put to rest all the pains and fears of yesterday... and today? Will there ever be the partner, friend, lover, helpmate... the planning together, sharing, joining of strengths and love that, when adversity strikes, serves only to strengthen our love? Will there ever by the One who draws closer to me--and I to her-- in the face of trials, growing and learning, together-- never to grow apart? Will there ever be quiet evenings by a fireplace, cuddling together, listening to the rains fall gently outside? Will there ever be romantic days and nights exploring together places never before seen... and places each of us have known? Will there ever be One to be by my side in gentle spring suns, to lie in my arms by a campfire, or to lean gently against me as together, we listen to a majestic symphony? Will she ever be there to stroll along moonlit beaches hand in hand, sharing Love, peace? Will I ever have the chance to delight One with unexpected home-cooked meals, or nights out to special places dear to her heart and soul? Will I ever have the chance to be there when She hurts and needs a gentle hug... or more? Will I ever have the chance to encourage Her to find her dreams and use her strengths to be all she can be... and more? Will there ever be... a time in the night... when she gently reaches out, Her arms soft, tender, enfolding me... and Her voice, full of Love, telling me of that love, as I in turn gently encircle her in my arms, cherishing her, Loving her, my heart singing of my Love for Her? Will there ever be? Or... are my dreams but dust... and my fate but to age... alone; die, alone...? July 20, 1994
