Take away my tears, dream walker,
they insist on keeping me awake
brush your fingers across my lips
and wipe the sea off from my cheeks.
Kiss away my tears, dear phantom,
they are of your time, long past,
they flow like time down my face
leaving lines throughout the night.
Spin away my tears, dear love,
in stories of chivalry and blood,
paint a picture on the mirror of
my eyes mirroring your face.
Charm away my tears, my love,
in your witty little smiles
remind me, beloved, what we are
in likeness and apart.
