I had a dream… or two…
In the first one we were flying
Not gloriously, like fine eagles in the sky
But laboriously, waiting in lines
Running through airports
Not getting the right seat
Landing in the middle of the road in strange cities.
Flying north when we wanted to go southwest.
Finally we get there, and I see my long-gone mother
She is radiant and young and happy
But too soon we must fly away again
Caught in all of the trappings of flying.
And then, oh, then, the dreams get strange.. and back to normal again
Children falling away, down and far away.
Your running away, now hidden in darkening shadows
I can’t find you
My heart is breaking into 300 million pieces.
Getting drunk when I haven’t drank in 6 years
Mysterious people recognizing my glow
New lives emerging
Warm sandy beaches
Food like I have never known before.
I finally wake up, and I almost pinch myself
….and feel my heart thumping in my chest.
Where am I now, why am I now…?
Just please don’t float away yet
Stay here in my memory
So I don’t forget you
The lessons, your wisdom, your beauty.
Stay dream, stay…
