I dreamed we were all standing on the shore
staring across the bay
and our feet felt the rocks beneath our shoes.
There were clouds above and below
in between our silent stares.
We all gathered in an empty stone house
elbows touching, feet shuffling
and our spirits were lifted by a Hand.
I dreamed that your eyes stabbed into mine
made me realize that in some ways
it is better that I am gone.
I dreamed that my suitcases
were being packed one last time
(for the fourth time)
and I know I haven’t left yet.
I dreamed that you were so happy
dressed in white.
and so confused.
I dreamed that we were in a forest,
and you came to me smiling
there were never words said
and I am left wondering.
