Before I wake

I loved you and gave freely
filling my eyes for you to see
without words I spoke the rest
and welcomed your head upon my breast
together we watched the tide
leaving our footprints at the seaside
you won my heart; struck in your gaze
and taught me love in wished for ways
If by our ocean we had remained
we might have kept our treasure gained
naked I came to you, stripped of my pride
all my barriers set aside
I walk along memory's wet seam
to wake up presently from my dream
