I’m too Old for Nightmares…

dreams are not real life

dreams are in my mind

dreams are not the future

dreams get left behind


when I close my eyes at night

and I see you falling slowly

when I slip into the darkness

and you turn your anger towards me


I can’t save you there

I can’t make you smile

I can’t bring you back

I can’t close the miles


but the darkness does not last

and when the sun breaks through

those nightmare chains are broken

and your ghostly hold is too
