Can you show me the way?

You rose out of my dreams.

Patterns of life

drawn on wind-swept sand

stretches of a thirsty desert

embracing footsteps of life

in search of love.

Date palms sway

dancing to a breeze

that has forgotten

to bring a teardrop from the sky.

Is it you who signals

a mirage

a will-o-the -wisp?

Sandstorm blinds.

Can you show me the way?
