In our dreams we saw glimpses of the world outside the cave.
Remember, I went there once with you,
The star-dark sky lit the night around us
And we were light.
We sat on the roof of the world,
The clouds flowing through us
Human forms mirrored the turnings of the moon
And we were one.
The trees were waving as the sun came up.
The flowers in the valley smiled
And the snow white peaks winked back
We danced with the morning dew.
I only left the darkness for a day, and that was long ago,
But when I dream,
The stars still dance in the mountain skies.
