5. In dreams

No longer in dreams,
we are more than we were;
for we were I and we were you.

In dreams we attempted the impossible
but now the impossible
does not tempt
for we are strangers
to impossibility.

In dreams we wrestled with tomorrows
but now, with yesterdays at our side,
‘tomorrow’ is merely tangled grass
that careful steps can breach.

Our dreams are not the dreams of youth
the immediate, passion
and the cliff edge of life.
Those dreams are long passed
but the dreams of forever
hold us in warm embrace,
softer than ardour,
more enduring than eager love.
