Someone Else’s Dream

What I want to know:
Is my dreamer day dreaming
Or sleeping peacefully and
Do they know I’m wondering
In my sleepless night?

What am I doing
In my dreamer’s dreams tonight
That has me so tired and
Yet unable to quiet
My mind and my heart?

Dear dreamer of dreams,
Dream up a happy ending
And send that dreamt up ending
My way so when I awake
I’m smiling with you

Tanka refrains and chains

What if it really were true that sleepless nights came from being awake in someone else’s dreams?
