You Were the Thorn

I slept last night
It's been awhile
Since I've turned off the light
Woke to my sheets in a pile

I dreamt that night
Of clear blue skies
Of birds in flight
A world of no lies

My imagination took me
Places I'll never go
I experienced a peace
The world will never know

I wandered into a field of corn
Sun in my eyes --then you
Love is a rose, you were the thorn
I need you to know, it's my fault too

With your hands in your pockets
Your eyes pulled closed
I felt a small rain droplet
While others soaked my clothes

I finally forgive you
For all that you have done
The things you'll continue
For I still have not won

Slowly you came over to me
And took me in your arms
Whispered, "Why can't you see?
"I never meant you any harm."

I awoke with a start
To my sheets in a pile
To the pounding of my heart
For the first time in a while
I thought of you with a smile
