I closed my eyes tonight and saw,

Another world not unlike my own.

Through endless streets of a grand city,

I saw not a soul,

I was alone.

I walked for hours,

In many places I found myself.

I saw both homes,

And grand cathedrals,

Lonely graveyards,

And moonlit beaches.

I saw them on my own.

From time to time,

A voice through the mist,

The vaguest notion of someone there,

Would give me hope,

And set my mind at ease.

There is no one to hold my hand,

Through sunlit days,

Nights of stars,

And infinite dark.

Endless stretches of sand,

Fall through the hourglass,

Before they are dreamed,

Forever gone.
