LET ME DREAM UPON YOUR OCEAN
by Dennis McCormack
Dreams-more beautiful than a starry night,
More real than my day’s delights,
Glimpses of heaven on my journey home,
Snapshots of earth unseen by day,
Shields for love, all true devotion,
Friends of artists, abode of angels.
Dreams-sent from yesterday’s friends,
Journeying heavenward, smile, tear, word,
Dead folk mixed with sea salt heard,
Let me dream upon your ocean.
