A Poem By Mairead // 6/2/2010

frozen in time
since I saw your eyes
I guess that's why
I still dream that you're mine

because I'm frozen in time
the time when everything was fine
something of sublime
life was my lullaby
I have a one track mind
why oh why
stuck in my mind
you and I

this dream is just a dream
can't turn wants into reality
it will take me long to see
some things will never be

I'll just try to live in my head
cuz there we're better best friends
but oh, it's all pretend
and it has to end

we're really dreaming now...
