If I could have just one wish laced in a theme,
To meet you tete-a-tete in some forbidden dream,
So that we drift away in its shimmering light,
Far from this world’s gazing sight.
And then the dawn would come knocking rising all souls,
But you would refrain to break your repose,
For you would be scared to break the scene,
Shattering those moments avoiding to be grim.
But then I would come gently by your side,
Waking you to the morning’s pristine bright,
when you would find me there making you rise,
you would be reluctant to open your eyes.
The dream that you would have seen the night before,
It would find new wings and together we would soar.
