night and floating dreams and time shall carry me -
And let me ride on drifting tides of thought, eternity
Caught in my mind, where future, past, are bound in tight embrace -
let me touch the moments there, the infinites that graced
shallow and distracted lives with deeply glowing jewels,
Remembered behind shuttered eyes, where greater kingdoms rule.
roll out the fantasies, old wish list of the brain -
let me make the most of them in case they don't attain
which actually, they rarely ever do -
let me tell you - despite that, there were perhaps a few
leapt right out of dreamtime into memory and stay
golden amber pictures of the way we used to play.
scroll past the memories, find moments still to come -
And let me taste adventure there, experience the sum
many pleasures, much amusement, love and jollity -
And let me savour them again, enjoy the quality
life lived full and generous and foamed over the brim -
the sensual to the sorrowful, from ragtime to the hymn.
Broad seas and guiding stars, but voyages will end -
So let me write the captain's log with gratitude - befriend
The cherishing of worlds within worlds, freedom to explore -
And let me speed imagination, flying it to shores
continents within my mind, where space and time are one
let me treasure this great gift, 'til this old bugger's done!
Within Worlds [3:07] - soundscape composed by Richard Hill
