I Dreamt of You

I dreamt of you last night
But not really
I didn’t see you or hear your voice
It was more the essence of you
The idea of you
In a photograph
Or a thought
I dreamt of you last night
But not really
It was more that you were
Still in my world
There was no feeling of loss
Or grief
Or sorrow
But not really
I dreamt of you last night
And woke to you missing
Gone so long ago
But not really
Gone just today

*** Dreamed of my dad last night – gone almost 19 years now – still miss him everyday.

  1. We all have these dreams…I often do of my mom…never quite see her..but sometimes I feel that soft hand on my cheek when asleep. Loved ones are always near 🙂

  2. I understand this. I have dreams like this all the time. Well captured. In the dreams, everything feels the way it did then, and waking brings pangs of deep loss.

  3. Bless you, Kathleen. I think I know that feeling – waking from a dream of my brother. That indefinable still here but not here anymore feeling. A blessing in some ways. Difficult in others.
