My Lost Dream

I had a dream that I wrote a poem.
I was sleeping in my bed at my home.
All the verses were clear in my head.
The meaning of life was about to be said.
Life and death would soon be told.
The secrets of the universe could unfold.
Passions were to be revealed.
My lips would not be sealed.
I tried to wake myself up, so I could write it down.
I kept on struggling, I felt like I was about to drown.
Then I lost all of my thoughts and my words were no longer clear.
My mind was blank, the story was gone and it would not reappear.
I woke up crying and worried about the poem that I had just lost.
I felt awful, as I knew what not waking from my dream had cost.

      1. Glad to see you back in the saddle! How are you feeling? I wonder if you had “it” ? My younger son said the subway he and his wife go to in GR has been named as a hot site for it.

      2. I was not sick. I had to have the tiles ripped out and new ones put in because dishwasher had a leak.
        I was staying in a hotel since Monday because I couldn’t walk on the new tiles till they dried.
        They are still doing work here but half of the house is done and I can get into my bathroom and bedroom again.
        I brought my tablet with me to the hotel, but it is so slow that I didn’t want to write anything.

      3. You were sick before though and seeing if you are over it now. A few people were worried about you and I let them know why you were incommunicado. I’m glad you’re back at home.

      4. Yes I was very sick and I am mostly over that although I still have a bit of a cough. Yes Paula wrote me an email and it is nice to have people thinking about me. It is good to be back, thanks for your concern.
