You Change My Dreams (a poem)

All of my life, and even in my dreams

I find myself searching.

Dream after dream – night after night – year after year I find I am

often longing.  Longing for love.

Today, as I heard myself once again asking why,

I see that you can fill that life long yearning.

You are the seeker.  The changer.

The one who transforms.

You fill me with hope.  You are

The healer.

You long for me.  You change my dreams.

May you find me

day after day – night after night – year after year – even in my dreams

full of longing for you.  May it be so.
