goodnight you

goodnight you, across the miles
millions it seems, insurmountable
mountains of lies behind smiles,
in dreams, waking to a doubtable

reality creeping round like mist,
dangling broken pieces still to mend,
remembering feeling we wished
to be facing each other again

but you can't plan the past
no matters how much it hurts
bandage up and soldier fast
to the road ahead and back to the work

And it's only in dreams late at night
before the world, from the truth
in the quiet beyond all sight
when I let you and I be everything to
