Drag me from this place of peace
And force on me your solitude
Drown my cares with guilt and pain
My heart it’s dreams will ere elude.
Dream now the dream that wakes my soul
To days when love will reign once more
The breeze that dissipates hate and fear
Recalls now what the heart is for.
Breathe hope into this broken life
Step softly into darkened rooms
Disturbing not the sleeping fate
Who dreams future bliss for love that blooms.
The heart unbiased, beats within
Swells and fades with ardent sway
Around the time that dreams begin
As twilight now to night gives way.
