I dreamed I spoke in another’s language,I dreamed I lived in another’s skin,I dreamed I was my own beloved,I dreamed I was a tiger’s kin.I dreamed that Eden lived inside me,And when I breathed a garden came,I dreamed I knew all of Creation,I dreamed I knew the Creator’s name.I dreamed–and this dream was the finest–That all I dreamed was real and true,And we would live in joy forever,You in me, and me in you.
