I can see clearly


I can see clearly how

you bloom in night’s harbour

dance your own brand of freedom

speak of angel blossom, mind’s tautologies’

rapt midnight visions

an innocent belief in truth.


You jump from jaded pavements

hand me back the lost lotus

remind me soul is always knocking

at the still door waiting to be heard.


I can see clearly how

fairy tales spin the stardust heaven

mystery breathes on sunset beaches

that love’s a troubadour spanning centuries

faith an echo ever to be reached

robed in constancy.


An hour with you

redresses compromise

reflects the speckled pathway to infinity:

now I’ve been taught by one I thought to teach

that hope’s a potent drug, blind man sees too much

a hand across a table’s sometimes not enough.


I can see clearly how

I threw myself away

the day I learnt to love you.
