the sweetest dream
I’ve ever had
was one where
I was in your arms
where our lips touched
I could feel the warmth
of your body
the softest embrace
you told me everything
would be alright
and for the first time
I believed it.
For a moment
my heart felt hopeful
I looked ahead
and saw a brighter future
But when I awoke
alone in the darkness
my heart sank
full of sorrow
And so I wept
for the loss of something
I never had
Though it was bitter-sweet
I hope to dream of it again
for of all the dreams
I’ve ever had
the sweetest
was of you.
