Standing Between

You tempt, you tease, then take away
the dream of two hearts' interplay
If I could just believe you cared
enough to take the chance and dare

the known for unknown glory of
the greatest dream, the highest love
I could with ease now turn and walk away
but then, of course, we'd find a way to stay

together always, everywhere
I see the gloomy clouds. I stare
into the heavens hanging low
then to the valley far below

that lies in placid safety in the arms
of Goddess, who will keep it safe from harm
And I feel the emptiness that will reside
when love reclaims the other side

of mountains that will stand between
the love within this waking dream
