Someone whispered in my ear,
That I was close and life was here.
Something pulled me near them
I could smell the love and taste the fear.
As I walked through gardens unseen,
And rode on lands I have never been,
I could see the days of my laughter there
And feel the bliss my heart couldn’t bear.
I knew my life was set away,
Then how did I see my dreams here?
I see no flower, no blooming dale,
No butterfly to play, no moist tear.
Yet I know I have seen the colors
Of rainbow hearts and green sunshine.
Oh! How I die to see me live,
In a land unknown, in a land so mine.
For it calls my name and touches my heart,
It knows my pain, it knows my ache.
I wonder if I have ever breathed this air.
That is my own but a stranger by far!
