Changing Direction

When the wise talk of love is it a dream
And do they dance beneath that moonlit beam
Just like you and I as we kiss goodnight
To hold the moment of love’s sweet delight
In a courtship that leads us to the heart
A prelude to the passion we behold
The beautiful gift granted to the bold
As we bear the pain of being apart
Yet still we can feel as exalted souls
The closeness in life but changes the roles
We play; and only the brave face that day
When a man must change his vision and goals
For her love; love, it’s more than a cliché
It’s the dream that was ne’er that far away
