"Rest with your dream in my dreams..."

It is late in the evening, it's quiet and I am blogging. I am a bit fatigued from writing book reviews, recipes and best calcium supplements and what have you. My eyelids are getting heavy and my mind is starting to numb. In the background, I have the music playing and this happened to come on just now and I thought of you. Because quiet, unguarded moments like these, they bring one memories of you and I could not help but close my eyes and let you fill my waking dreams.

And now you're mine. Rest with your dream in my dream.
Love and pain and work should all sleep, now.
The night turns on its invisible wheels,
and you are pure beside me as a sleeping amber.

No one else, Love, will sleep in my dreams.
You will go,we will go together, over the waters of time.
No one else will travel through the shadows with me,
only you, evergreen, ever sun, ever moon.

Your hands have already opened their delicate fists
and let their soft drifting signs drop away;
your eyes closed like two gray
wings, and I move

After, following the folding water you carry,
that carries me away. The night, the world,
the wind spin out their destiny.
Without you, I am your dream, only that, and that is all.

~ by Pablo Neruda (translated)
