dream walk

it's dark,
i feel you stirring restlessly beside me,
i reach across your chest and draw myself into you,
i want to say something comforting,
i think i tell you i love you,
but sleep pulls heavily at me,
i want to bring you with me,
to hold your hand and walk through sun-golden orchards,
full of strange animals and unknown fruits,
to walk across green fields,
and meadows filled with buzzing flowers,
to walk along rocky, winding creek beds,
sparkling with the cold memory of some high and wintry peak
