Mirage

You are like a mirage in my deserted life.
My hands tremble when I try to touch you,
With the fear that you may disappear.

You are like a mirage.
You seem so near when you are so far away.
You help me take each step with the hope that I may reach you.

You are like a mirage.
You seem like water to my parched throat.
You seem like the haven my tired body yearns for.

You are like a mirage.
You beautify my desert, my life,
When the sun beats down on it mercilessly.

You are like a mirage.
You keep the spark of life alive in my sight,
You make me live for something beautiful.

You are like a mirage.
You make the cacti seem like date palms,
You make my tear drops seem like the oceans.

You are like a mirage.
And with a mirage so beautiful, who cares for the truth.
