I saw
In you
The glow of a hundred candles
Heard whispered prayers and chanted songs
Carried on air consecrated with a thousand sticks of incense
Traced tender feet bathed in the dew of the perfect Summer
And touched gentle hands that know
Just how
To tease
The nectar from the honeysuckle.
Is it true?
Could I capture the moon?
As it glitters off dew,
In a blue glass bottle,
And give it to you?
And would it taste like June?
And the rains that came
Not a moment too soon?
He gathered them up,
One by one:
Little voodoo dolls.

He made one for every person he met.
Taking the time to smoothly bind the threads
And craft each one perfectly.

All the dolls he made,
All the pins he placed,
Yet all his spells fizzled.

The magic would have worked perfectly,
If he could have ever seen people
As more than lifeless dolls.
She wasn't his princess,
He wasn't her prince.
After all the tales and stories,
Frogs were just frogs,
And some girls weren't the kind,
You married in a fancy white dress,
In a church on a Sunday.
No, some were the kind,
You married on a Tuesday,
Down at the courthouse,
With a plain gold band,
In the best clothes you both owned.
Because fairy-tales don't come true,
But the plain truth can still become
Its own sort of fairy-tale magic.
I once had an invisible friend,
He built castles of laughter,
And could make a broken heart mend.

He was patient and kind,
And full of respect,
But all others were blind,
To his existence.

My friend was nothing but true,
But I repaid him in leaves,
I let the others get through,
And almost lost my belief.

Until I had a thought,
At once sudden and strange:
What if my friend is not,
Just some words on a page?

What if his heart beats,
And pumps hot through his veins?
But somehow he needs,
Belief to be sustained?

So on the off chance,
That any of this is true,
I'll continue to dance,
Alone, but with you.
