Last Night I Dreamt I Saw You

Last night I dreamt I saw you standing in a field of blue wild flowers, it's been decades since I've seen you, but it only felt like hours. You were smiling at me, that crooked smile I love, I tried to move toward you, but my feet were stuck in mud. I was rooted to the spot, on the border of that field and, though I longed to reach you, the earth refused to yield. Frustrated and panicking I looked down at my feet, and then you were gone and... I guess I was asleep.

What a sad, yet a dream I can imagine that was real, and one you experienced...realizing it's meaning upon the morning's light. Made me sad. But Happy that you were a deserving winner in the contest! Congratulations, Danielle!
