In fear I tremble – dark of night –
The racing terrors holding sway –
Disturbed by images bold and bright –
Cowering, praying for light of day.
A friend I have, far off in space –
A palace of moon beams and feathers abounds.
Mind frozen still – words hastily vanish –
Emptiness. Panic surrounds!
I cry out the name! Desperate. Pleading – and then –
The strangest occurrence. A bending of time –
Soul like a river being rippled by wind –
The sweetest of songs lifts the mind –
Her beautiful form appears, gentle and slow –
The warrior’s heart in her breast –
I drift off to slumber, rocking deep, rocking low –
As my dear friend brings safety at last.
