Dawn Approaches

When your dream comes creepin’

Into your heart

No matter how outlandish

In all its fancies awakened,

Then it’s time to sing your wish

No matter the darkness

Of memories it may harness.

It’s time to dream no more

For you know the sun is heartless

And few will care for fear,

So gather your spirit on shore

Before you set foot into the wilderness

And bid farewell to comfort dear.
