No Dreamer, But Thy Dream

Prayer

Master, they say that when I seem
             To be in speech with you,
Since you make no replies, it’s all a dream
            — One talker aping two.
 
They are half right, but not as they
               Imagine; rather, I
Seek in myself the things I meant to say,
              And lo! The wells are dry.
 
Then seeing me empty, you forsake
               The Listener’s role, and through
My dead lips breathe and into utterance wake
                The thoughts I never knew.
 
And thus you neither need reply
               Nor can; thus while we seem
Two talking, thou art One forever, and I
              No dreamer, but thy dream.

 

— C.S. Lewis
