Lover’s Gifts XXVIII: I Dreamt

Lover’s Gifts XXVIII: I Dreamt

I dreamt that she sat by my head, tenderly ruffling my hair with
Her fingers, playing the melody of her touch. I looked at her face
And struggled with my tears, till the agony of unspoken words burst
My sleep like a bubble.
I sat up and saw the glow of the Milky Way above my window,
Like a world of silence on fire, and I wondered if at this moment
She had a dream that rhymed with mine.
