Nightmare

I have dreamed of you since we met.
I dream in buried fears.

We are seperated--
You won't talk to me.

I go on--
Less than whole

But I go on.
I survive but I am sad.

I am so sad about the idea
That you might not always be beside me.

Last night I had a nightmare
This time you were dead.

Like in my other dreams--
I lived on.

But inside I was torn to shreds.
At times I forgot you were gone

Only to return to the reality
That I could no longer see you,

That I could not hear your voice.
I cried and cried

But you were truly gone--

Funny how our deepest fears find us,
Even in slumber.

Sleep is no bliss
Laced in fright.

I awake to find you by my side
I am relieved.

I slumber again
Only to find I am back in the land of nightmares.

I too suffer from nightmares. It is a familiar friend.

A friend?

I couldn't have written this better if I tried. I feel the same way now, except that you're not next to me when I awake. I am glad that you have found happiness lately. I too am finding it again as well. I hope that we can share our new found happiness together for many years to come. I love you with my whole heart.
