The Dream

Sleepy Girl

I saw a dream
long lost to me,
in search of
another’s waking.

It found a shoreline
far away
as the day —
as my heart,
was breaking.

And I sighed and wept
for what could not be —
and for all that could
have been,

For every hope
and every prayer
long drowned
beneath the sea.

I fell to sleep
alone that night,
to the sound
of a distant call.

The faintest whisper
of good-bye —
and the dream
was mine, no more.
