Yesternight, I dreamt of me and you,
Of fairy lights and starry skies;
Stories told of youth and hopes anew,
And all the lies in fair disguise.
Bonfires lit the smile that you despise,
But all that joy, you could not hide.
Then dawn adjourned my sleep and crystallized
The truth that dreams are void inside.
       Yesternight, I dreamt of you and him,
       Of brooding love in bleakest lights—
       Passion, fraught, and destination, grim—
       Yet not a cry, no call on sprites.
       Dreaming still, I saw in blacks and whites
       The past and future yet betide.
       Cold awoke me fast and set my sights
       On the truth that dreams are void inside.
Yesternight, I dreamt of you and her,
Of innocence and perfect love.
All the pain and suffering that were,
Relieved by warmth in tender grove.
Might earth quiver, fire from above—
No woe too great to take in stride.
Mid-morn light arrived and got rid of
The thought that dreams are void inside.
       Morrow night I shall have dreams of you;
       Of love that’s true but mine aside,
       Shall I dream of joy I never knew
       And rest in peace, my dreams abide.
