Reoccurring Dream

I have awakened to an odd sort of place
A room unfamiliar, extravagant, and lace

A bed so grand and remarkably soft
A floor of wood and pictures aloft

A heavenly sent bombards my senses 
My guard is down exposed defenses

Another beside me stirs about
Shocking me slightly to force a roust 

From under the blankets emerges a pup
A handful at most no bigger than a cup

Back in bed I wrestle the stranger
Bellowing loudly devoid of danger

All at once a jolt brings me back
A cane to the face a large “Thwack” 

My eyes strain through the new found tears
Returning my attention to all my old fears

I am back in the orphanage with the other kids
With ragged old cloths and bruised eyelids 

Drifting back to sleep, I want to dream again
Of the grand ol’ room and pup my friend.
