Awakening To A Dream

In bed

A white hospital bed

Connected to cords

To chains

With only a table

Bare of fruit baskets

And sympathy cards

Where each day is spent

In slumber

.

Dreaming

Of the feel of crushing

Delicate grass

As a white dress is twirling

In a shining sun

Under which

Your family sits

Watching

.

Then awakening

To the cruel reality

Of the fact

Movement is no longer possible

Let alone twirling in a white dress

And the family

Has left

Scattered with the fickle wind

A reunion is no longer possible

.

Dreaming of impossible dreams

Living life

Sleeping

Awakening only to eat

Then going back to sleep

.

Awakening

From the long slumber

To the meadow

Where all the other dreams were spent

In the meadow

A group of people is gathered

Some faces

Are recognizable

Others

Are new to the eye

.

Among the people

The parents

Smiling and waving

In this happy dream

That will last forevermore
