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.
