Hand painted dreams

Alike the silence of a dream

Forgotten by dawn

Not to be remembered

but in broken pieces of no meaning...

.

Alike that coming moment

That brings no tomorrow

But takes away  today ...

Alike me walking behind my shadow

.

Leaving the dark traces of memories behind

Turning back and  nothing to see

Lost at the beginning of no-ways ahead

Searching for what might have been

What should have been in places

I have  already been

.

Alike me walk with me

In this grey garden of  green remembrance

Where every fallen leaf dreams of

That last unfinished  dance 

And  in the dry vain of every branch

A picture of blue sky lives

And  the sweetness of  that lost spring

That lost spring that will  never grow green

Is forever  green

Is forever  green

Walk with me in the land of hand painted dreams

.

I will grow  dreamlike

Dreamlike  but tall

Dreamlike  but green
