You hold my heart
In this dream i have, you'r standing there,
with my heart in your hands.
In that blank white room you hold, what I am as a man.
You hold not just my heart, but you hold my soul as well.
While my heart is in your hands,
in my dream it's in light I dwell.
I stand in a bright lit room,
no chair nor couch in sight.
I look deep into your eyes,
and I feel as if in flight.
I see my heart in your gentle grasp,
and feel as if I'm safe.
I hope that you will remain here,
with my heart in your embrace.
But then as if an hour passed,
you have dissappeared.
My heart lays on the floor,
and i see what I have feared.
I grab my heart up off the floor,
and it beats with love then hate.
I turn to leave and see you hurt,
just behind a gate.
I open the gate and hold you close,
as your eyes fill with tears.
I tell you that I'll keep you safe,
and that I'll save you from your fears.
Then again an hour passes,
and we grow apart.
I than awake when another passes,
but in your hands you hold my heart.
