sleepdance

i hold your hand, in mine
as you drift gently into sleep.
lost in a smiling sleepdream
or a sleepdance as you term it

you left behind reality, escaping
into your night dreams, except
for me holding on to your hand
watching over you in reality

i hope your mind, is dancing
i hope your soul, is free
i hope there is music
and a partner to dance with.
