On Call

Sleep my love
sleep

In your hands today
rested the lives of some
seventy-five
Impossible !

In your hands also
my heart is protected
or so I believe

Sleep my love
sleep

Dream
walking on the shore
cold waves biting our ankles,
like those silly dogs
girls carry

Dream
my love, dream
Walking along the shore
with a dear, dear friend
or maybe
someone
you loved.

I can no more
un-love you
than un-breathe or
un-gravity

Sleep my love
sleep
Dream

In your sleep
In your dream
perhaps
you will rediscover
my love for you
and yours
for
me

I can no more
un-love you
than un-breathe or
un-gravity
