Wake For A Dream


    To dreams not for me,

    Though for a time

    I thought they aligned.

    Now I see

    The light become dark,

    A dream snatched away,

    Vanishing day.

    I feel the loss.

    I reach for all

    That was already mine,

    But the way forward

    Is slow going now,

    For I am wandering

    Without a light in my eyes.

    Will you stay

    And wait with me

    In my pain-

    No words to say

    No earthly thing to gain-

    And show another soul

    What it means to matter

    Just because I’m alive?
