 Heart Songs

Reality Versus Pretense

Reality Versus Pretense

Come dance with me through the pictures of your mind
Open wide your heart to taste the salt of bitter tears

Pathways walked in shadows grin of reflections left behind
To touch upon the truth of heart perhaps the greatest fear

Reality versus make believe a game not easily won
Round and round the circles go to greet the morning sun

Pretense the tool
The fool does find to cloak the questioning heart
Shadows born of yesterday refusing to depart

Do you truly not understand there can be no final tear?
Always will remain the love so far ... and yet so very near

Release thy muse to speak the tears
For understanding one day to be made clear

Remain the fool or dance with me?

I am your reality
