life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

if the stars were mine


I close my eyes as dreamscape falls gently down around me

Dream chaser, tenderly take my hand

carry me away in your passionate embrace

let’s dive deeply into the liquid rainbows

Dream catcher, pull me into your web of light

spilling me softly out into this sparkling milky way

keep daring to dream the impossible dreams

oh, sweet dreamer, dream sweetly

there are no limits in this dreamers world

the same moon shines brightly, dream lover to us all

the sands of time run ever dreaming into the winds of change

live like there’s no tomorrow

dance while the stars turn blue

love whether smiles or sorrow

dream like they’ll all come true

Amy Lloyd


Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that a spring was breaking
out in my heart.
I said: Along which secret aqueduct,
Oh water, are you coming to me,
water of a new life
that I have never drunk?


Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that I had a beehive
here inside my heart.
And the golden bees
were making white combs
and sweet honey
from my old failures.


Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that a fiery sun was giving
light inside my heart.
It was fiery because I felt
warmth as from a hearth,
and sun because it gave light
and brought tears to my eyes.


Last night as I slept,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that it was God I had
here inside my heart.


Last Night as I was Sleeping by Antonio Machado



if I could give you
every star that shines
in the clear
night sky
I would.
every wildflower
that blooms
I would.
every birdsong at dawn,
every radiant sunset,
every lover’s sigh,
I would.
instead I have
given you
my body,
my heart,
my love.
I would give
you more
if I could.
