I went into a forest deep –

I went into a forest deep
green and greener still
everlasting trees
in soils rich

surrounded me
and I kept on until
I couldn’t see until I knew
I was in a dream and became

unafraid
opening my eyes
to see the dreamer behind
all the dreams and I found stars

in a dark midnight sky
scattered all around
singing to me
a lullaby

and I didn’t want to leave
like a babe attached
to mother’s
breast

they said to me
you came from stars
born in our heart with light
we sent you to earth to shine

not in the sky like us
but to dream of forests
and trees, oceans and seas
mountains and cliffs underneath

skies
endlessly so
brilliant in the night
from light born in your heart
