DREAMING

I DREAMED ABOUT YOU LAST NIGHT

I had a dream about you last night,
a beautiful dream, of times long past.
In it, all our problems had taken flight,
and we were again, close friends at last.

Our lives back then were so very close,
when “awake dreams” were so compatible
talking about those times long lost,
before our closeness took a sabbatical.

This was such a very strong dream,
but it did not last long enough,
and about that time it seemed,
suddenly I awoke, to this world so rough.

I realized then, life is but a dream,
some good, some bad, but all too short.
We must live our own life it seems,
strong, awake, as ours was, from the start.
